As providers of studios and workspaces for artists, makers and creative industries and facilities for communities across Scotland, Wasps are really excited to be able to extend this provision to the wider creative community of Inverness and beyond.

Work has commenced to transform the Midmills building and we would now like to invite formal applications from all artists, designers and makers who are interested in renting space in this exciting new studio project in Inverness. The first phase of development will provide affordable studio spaces for around 40 artists and makers. Studios will be available to let from December 2018.

We have a range of spaces available. More information on the types of spaces available and prices can be found within our application pack. Please read both the application guidelines and the eligibility criteria in full before completing the application form. Use the application form to provide as much information as you can about your studio needs.

Completed application forms are to be sent to Lois Green at lois@waspsstudios.org.uk along with the following information:

  • 6-8 images of your most recent work
  • An up to date CV
  • A statement about your work.

Our initial application period has closed, however we are continuing to accept applications for any remaining studios, or to be placed on our waiting list.

Please note that applications for creative industries and cultural social enterprises will take place once Phase 2 commences. We are only currently taking applications for those eligible for Phase 1. If you are a creative business, arts organisation or social enterprise, please register your interest by emailing lois@waspsstudios.org.uk
