Equipment & Facilities

With a little support and some generous donations our studio facilities have grown over time. We currently offer the following facilities to studio members (see below.) We are always looking at ways in which we can improve what we offer our members and we will endeavour to continue to source and upgrade our equipment as we go on…

If you have high quality, industrial (or semi-industrial) textile equipment that needs a new home then please do get in touch.
