All workshop and tool pass
The facilities at Abbeymount Studios include purpose built workshops with tools and equipment for fashion and textile design, ceramics and printmaking. We encourage resident artists to use all facilities to create their work.

24 hour access
Creativity is not limited to 9-5. Our resident artists have around the clock access to all workshop spaces and tools at Out of the Blue Abbeymount Studios outwith class times, and 24 hour access to their own desk.

Your own desk space
In our co-working spaces each resident artist has desk space to work from and to store materials.

We believe that colleagues and peer support improves productivity and prevents isolation for the self-employed artist and maker.
We also arrange open days and exhibitions at The Out of the Blue Drill Hall to help promote artists’ work.
