The Studio

Our new studio in Lewes is a two-floor workshop for workshops, inspiration, learning and gatherings. Alongside our creative colour agency we are a photographic location and a space for workshops, a studio to create, discover, share and grow together.


Our new studio is housed in a 400 year old converted coaching Inn right in the heart of Lewes in East Sussex, just an hour or so from London Victoria. Renovated responsibly and with sustainable building practice at its heart, full of character, heritage and a sensitive approach to colour, surface and reclaimed materials throughout. The Studio has two unique spaces for hire, a photographic location and event space.

We are delighted to be able to have the perfect space where we can host client workshops and creative sessions, alongside our our archive of design books, colour and materials. We will be inviting like-minded creatives to share their wisdom, and host gatherings, as we build our network of learning, creating and healing.
