Hot and Cool studio's are a community residing in two buildings, that contain people working in design, photography, props, textiles, shoe making, sculpture, painting, ceramics, woodwork and desk based offices.
Just 10 kilometres from the CBD, Cool Studio's Workshop and Hot Studio's are situated in one of the old manufacturing warehouses that were for a time prolific in Brunswick – it has now become an inner-city space for people to get their hands busy, to build and create.
The Cool Studio's Workshop is suitable for emerging and/or established artists, furniture makers, tailors, crafters. The Workshop currently houses twelve workspaces. The space will suit practices that include a diverse range of creative mediums involving light industrial or mechanised processes or machines with low noise/vibrational emissions, artisanal tools for making or working with solvents, dyes, clay and pigments.
The Hot Studio's is a space for quieter practitioners, suitable for photographers, ceramicists and desk based work. The warehouse currently houses ten workspaces. This building will suit artists that enjoy natural light, low noise and a heated environment in winter.
Practitioners who work with hot industrial techniques (such as welding), or practices requiring/using heavy equipment or machinery are not suitable for either of these spaces.
The studio's include multiple electrical outlets, free wifi (NBN), and tenants have access to shared kitchenette facilities and bathrooms.
