The Art Station is a non-profit arts organisation, developing a creative hub in Saxmundham, a rural market town in coastal Suffolk. We are developing a new creative space for local artists, makers and tech developers, with exhibition and event space right on the High Street in Saxmundham.
Our plan is to unlock potential and effect real change, enabling people to come together and form communities around the creative industries and tech.
The Art Station is a non-profit arts organisation, developing a new workspace for the creative industries in Saxmundham and as a base for an arts programme for the local community and coastal Suffolk.
Work will be starting on the refurbishment in July 2020 and will be looking for artists/makers/tech developers to join us at this iconic 1950s industrial building.
The Art Station offers art education as an experience which links people to different methods, practices, ideas and technology; and as a means of expression which enables a feeling of empowerment, self-worth and identity.
“The creation of studios, work spaces and a meeting point for the cultural and creative community in rural East Suffolk, has the potential to build the local economy and sense of place.”
Jayne Knight (arts development manager, Suffolk County Council)
Fun online art, coding and yoga activities and resources for children and families.
The exhibition will be open to the public for bookable small group tours and visits
Saturdays and Sundays 10am-4pm
