STUDIO SPACE AVAILABLE - An opportunity to join the Pressmore Studio Group

The Pressmore Group has a space available at its studio in Ashley Green.  Based on a farm in Ashley Green (between Berkhamsted and Chesham in Buckinghamshire) a group of artists share the studio space on a co-operative basis.  

The studio has good light, is equipped with easels, tables, a drying rack and a printing press and is available 24/7.  Although it does not have much room for storage, a small space is allocated to each artist for materials.   The group are mostly painters and printmakers but would also welcome artists using other media.  They exhibit together when opportunities arise and have networking sessions and group crits.  

Each artist contributes £45 per month to cover the rent of the studio.   If you are interested in joining the Pressmore Group or would like more information, please phone Joanna Bryant on 01442 871680.
