Deptford Foundry Studios
A new community of creative studios on a 250-year lease
In early 2019, Deptford Foundry becomes home to a new community of local artists, craft makers and designers.
Beep Studio are delighted to be working with Second Floor Studios and Arts (SFSA) on the fit-out and delivery of over eighty brand new purpose-built studio spaces: that’s 30,000 square feet of affordable workspace providing a home for up to 160 creative people.
The project is currently on site and in the final stages of construction.
The area around the development is already home to a depth of creative business including bronze casting, galleries, studio workspaces, dance studios and jewellery makers, all supported by the presence and investment from Goldsmith’s College at New Cross. The new creative spaces will attract further diversity and individuality to the area providing a social and cultural value to the new residential development.
Practices represented include:
Jewellery & Silversmithing
Fine Art Photography Printmaking
SFSA has the core aim of creating long-term security of tenure and sustainable studio workspace for its members.
The studios at Deptford Foundry are the first phase in a new 20-year strategy for the arts organisation, whose capital investment programme in a portfolio of building assets will create studio provision for generations of artists and makers to come.
