Directory of Co-operatives
Centrespace began life as Bristol Craft & Design Centre in 1977 when an old printing works in the heart of the city was converted into studios. Within the centre, managed co-operatively by its tenants, are 27 individual businesses covering a wide spectrum and high standard of creative skills - ceramics, blown glass, design, fashion, illustration, jewellery, leatherwork, modelmaking, painting, soft furnishings, sculpture, upholstery and woodcarving. In 2001 Centrespace expanded its interests to include a gallery space for hire by artists and craftspeople wishing to hold self managed solo or group exhibitions. Centrespace welcomes enquiries about renting studio or exhibition space, as well as enquiries and visits from potential clients.
