About

Westland Place Studios is one of the oldest established artist communities in and around Hoxton and Old St. It's a hive of creativity home to painters, printmakers, photographers, sculptors, illustrators, ceramicists and designers. In total 23 artists occupy the evocative spaces spread over four floors of this former tobacco pouch and smokers' pipe factory. 

The work of the resident artists spans a wide range of art disciplines and creative approaches. Its a stimulating environment for all those working in the building and an exciting place to visit.

The opening evening will include a special live performance commencing at 7PM.
