Craft Central has been running studios and shared workspaces for nearly 40 years and has a very good idea of what creative businesses need. We have housed jewellers, ceramicists, digital designers, costumiers, interior designers, watch repairers, weavers and textile designers, musical instrument makers, creative start- ups and many more.

We have a range of studios between 83 to 334 square feet and we have designed them to be as flexible as possible; they are ideal for individual makers and designers but can easily be adapted for use by groups of makers or creative start-ups.

All studios have windows onto the communal areas and are made to a high specification, with acoustic insulation between the walls, good natural light and plenty of power sockets.

The building

The Forge is within a gated residential community with on-site security, a fully equipped kitchen, café benches, tables, co-working areas, and meeting rooms.  And the building is heated, well ventilated, and professionally cleaned. We have free parking available, a loading area, and excellent public transport links – with Mudchute DLR station five minutes walk away, Island Gardens DLR, the Greenwich Foot Tunnel, and the Thames Clipper service ten minutes walk, the Jubilee Line at Canary Wharf is easily accessible, as are a number of buses to Canary Wharf and east London. And Cross Rail is coming too.

As a studio holder you will be able to take part in open studios and other events.
