By locating to Craft Central occupiers can exhibit and sell fine craft products at our events, whilst the ever-growing network of designer-makers enables craftspeople to link with colleagues in the wider craft and creative community. The design can be adapted to allow varying unit sizes. Studios range from 83 sq. ft up to 345 sq.ft and make maximum use of natural light. Studios can be combined to provide larger units up to say 1,000 sq.ft (subject to availability). The Forge also offers shared workspaces for people who want somewhere to work occasionally rather than commit to a full-time studio. The Forge also provides co-working and shared space and a triple height gallery, suitable for venue hire.
