Artists & Creatives

The Bluecoat is home to several artist studios, artists in residence and inspiring creative industries doing fascinating and important work.

Since 1927 artists have been working in our building.

Between the studio holders who have been with us for many years, to temporary residencies, the Bluecoat has a thriving creative community. Browse them below and click on their profile to find out more.
