Currently, the Sewing Hub is a learning space that welcomes community use. Anyone hiring the space or machinery will need to read and sign our Hire of Machinery policy. We will also need to go through our Health and Safety policy with you and discuss any training needs. 

The cost of hiring studio space and/or co-working with other designers is logistically quite complicated because it depends on so many differing criteria. For example we will need to consider when you would like to book, for how long, which machines you would like access to, whether you need the cutting table, any training etc.  The more hours you book, the less expensive it’s going to be.  We want this to work for you and can be flexible. 

A 50% deposit is required.
