Wimbledon Art Studios is situated off Garratt Lane between Earlsfield and Tooting Stations, just behind Wimbledon Greyhound Stadium. The art studios is one of the largest, single site art studio complexes in the UK, comprising of two separate buildings split into the Red, Yellow and Blue Studios. The art studios have helped to bring regeneration to an otherwise neglected part of the borough of Wandsworth and is now a renowned hub of contemporary art dedicated to providing affordable art space and learning opportunities for people who would like to know more about contemporary art. Established in 1992 within a working paper warehouse the Red Studios opened with 6 artists occupying art studios alongside the paper business. The Red Studios is now home to 87 studios, whilst the Yellow Studios, built in 2013, comprises of 76 studios. The purpose built Blue Studios was completed in 2007 on the same site, providing another 52 studios with exceptional natural light. Wimbledon Art Studios now provides affordable creative art space for over 270 artists and hosts twice yearly Art Fairs attracting around 8,000 visitors per annum from all over London and beyond. The Wimbledon Art Fair is free to attend as we strive to make contemporary art truly accessible to everyone.
