The Hive Artist Studios

Chelmsford has a habit of spawning artistic talent, and in the town that Grayson Perry grew up in, and was ‘inspired’ by, stands The Hive Artist Studios. Opened in September 2010 and set amongst quirky industrial units and corrugated iron sheds circa 1950 is a shared studio space, run by a dedicated group of established artists.

The HiveEach Hive Artist has been selected for their talent, originality, the standard of their artwork and the desire to forward their artistic practice. The diversity of artwork includes illustration, sculpture, community based projects, designer jewellery, photography, painting, printmaking, public art and much more. Bucking against the trend this small, unfunded, independent group of fourteen artists are creating, exhibiting and selling beautiful, original pieces of artwork. Workshops, one-to-one tutorials and studio open days are held through the year and visitors are welcome by prior appointment. In 2013 The Hive Artist Studios became a ‘Foundation Studio’, part of an Arts Council, Essex County Council and Firstsite scheme called The Essex Network of Artist Studios [ENAS]. This exciting new project links eight established Essex studios to create a wider, inspiring, creative community.
