    The Button Factory is a 1950's brick factory now being used as a creative space for woodwork, ceramics, photography, dance, music and events.  A cafe is in the building on the ground floor serving breakfast, lunch, snacks and, of course, coffee.

    There are several spaces available for use - an indoor industrial-style carpark of 100sqm, an indoor garden space of 85sqm, a dance studio of 80sqm and a beautifully light filled area upstairs of 350sqm, painted white with soaring metal-truss roof.  This area is ideal for so many different purposes.

    Pricing Terms

    All prices for each of the spaces can be negotiated to hopefully suit your budget.
