Artists participating in our previous residency schemes have found it to be an engaging and inspiring experience that informs their practice.

The School has a happy and productive atmosphere and is full of brilliant artists and crafts people. I really enjoyed making new connections as well as re-establishing existing contacts in a new environment. The curiosity and energy of the students was infectious and it was exciting to engage with them as a fellow artist.

The studio I was given was light and spacious, with tall ceilings. It wasn’t cluttered with past work and failed earlier attempts. It lent itself to a variety of experiments that, with time and guidance, allowed me to navigate a path to what I feel are reasonably successful iterations of the earlier work. Everyone I met was friendly, welcoming and helpful. The place was busy and purposeful, supportive and engaging ,which made it a great place to work.

The City & Guilds of London Art School residency is incredibly valuable – probably the best residency in London. It’s such a fantastic location, beautiful studios, great facilities and technicians. If you want to experiment with new mediums, this is perfect. You can walk into a workshop and tell the technician what you want to make, and they’ll have loads of ideas and patience to help you make it.
