Manor Oaks

In August 2010, we expanded our workspace provision with four brand new purpose built, eco-designed studios at Manor Oaks.

These large spaces are particularly suitable for light industrial processes and can accommodate around 6 artists and makers.

Only two miles from Sheffield City Centre, Manor Oaks is home to a small and thriving community of craft practitioners, located on the site of a 16th Century deer park and the historic Tudor residence of Bess of Hardwick and her captive, Mary Queen of Scotts.

Designed by Michael Brooke Architecture and developed in partnership with Green Estate, the studios have green ‘living’ roofs and are accessed through a Chelsea award-winning garden.
