Studios

CADS Studios

CADS now manages 8 buildings, providing over 100 studios and 4 multi-purpose event spaces covering 25,000 sq ft.

Our spaces serve small businesses as well as artists, craftspeople, and creative individuals. 

The vast majority of our studios are priced at under £50 per week, inclusive of utilities, which was the maximum weekly inclusive rental budget of many artists in 2010, according to the NFASP.
 

Available studios

We currently have over 100 studios spanning over 8 ex-industrial and ex-office spaces in Sheffield. Demand for creative spaces is high and we are always looking to expand into more new, exciting premises and transform them into communities of work, art and play. Our studios have played host to a variety of occupants, from jewellery makers, to website designers – we have something to suit everyone.

Our studios are always changing and sometimes we may have studios coming up that are not yet published here. We also have contacts in other places around Sheffield who have studios available to rent so give us a call or an email and we will always be happy to point you in the right direction.

Eagle Works

Eagle Works is CADS' latest studio and event space complex, residing in the previous business headquarters of Castmaster Roll Ltd, the Eagle Foundry in Attercliffe. With its grand entrance marked by towering flagpoles and a marble foyer, the two-story red brick building encompasses art studios, work space, and large courtyard with space for parking and outdoor units which will be activated as events and gallery spaces. We're extremely excited about this space, with its diverse facilities and beautiful architectural details giving it a real sense of local history and character. It's a perfect fit for artists as well as small businesses, with rooms to cater for both.

Exchange Street

Exchange Street is a collection of former shop units looking onto the site of the old Castle Market. We're working with Sheffield City Council to open up these spaces for use by musicians in the city. The first 3 units taken on have seen huge success already, with Delicious Clam, a DIY recording studio and venue, being featured in The Guardian, and Plot 22 (run by RiteTrax) garnering excellent press and support. The third unit, Bal Fashions, is well on its way to getting a full license as a exciting new bar.
