we are now seeking applications for a new a new concept, THE CHRYSALIS PROJECT, where lot19 donate a free studio to an emerging artist of particular vigour and talent so they can peruse their craft beyond immediate financial constraints. the first artist to be granted the studio was inta krumins, and we look forward to you becoming aware of her work in the near future! we look forward to this idea having legs, and as the concept develops, supporting a wide range of emerging artists over the years…

we are so happy to now host 26 artists, following the completion of 4 new studios. a further new studio allows us the honour of hosting ‘trouble magazine‘, and a new open-access pottery studio is nearing completion, with a large gas fired top-hat kiln and a small electric kiln. please email expressions of interest, and stay tuned for details. next is an additional new stage… (oops, this building thing is infectious!), and a new studio for a print collective! yep…
