1000 degrees studios
Type of space: Visual Art Studio, Warehouse, Art Gallery, Design Studio, Multi-use Space
1000 Degrees Studios are purpose built spaces for artists and designers to realise their creative concepts. The workshop offers makers the rare opportunity to have their own studio space within a working glass studio environment, enabling artists to practice their arts’ businesses with direct access to studio equipment.
Although established as a glass studio we are not a glass specific workshop; the space and facilities offer possibilities across a number of mediums. Previous resident artists have worked in metals and jewellery, ceramics, painting and music. There are opportunities for artists working in ceramics and enamelling to use the kilns also.
There is a large communal space that can be used for hosting collectors’ tours, meetings with galleries and clients, photo shoots and packing for exhibitions. A gallery/project space offers room for trialling installs, installations and showcasing new works to visitors.
1000 Degrees Studios are situated on the fringe of industrial Moorabbin within close proximity to glass suppliers, glass blowing workshops, hot rod mechanics, market gardens, the beach and wetlands. The workshop and your studio space is available 24 hours to resident artists and by appointment to occasional users. It features a project space/gallery, kiln workshop, a purpose built glass grinding & polishing workshop, wax & mould making area, sandblaster, kitchen and bathroom, roller door access & security system.
There are up to four resident artists based at 1000 Degrees at any one time, which along with occasional users of the space and equipment creates a vibrant and supportive creative collective.
If you are interested in the studio, please do not hesitate to contact us & come by for a chat.
