We’ll meet again

Due to the Covid-19 Crisis, The Island is now temporarily closed until further notice.

We hope to reopen our artist studios as soon as possible but in order to protect the health and wellbeing of our staff, studio-holders, visitors and the wider public all events are cancelled and access to the studios restricted until further notice to discourage unnecessary travel. We are operating with a small core staff.  Any urgent enquiries should be sent to info@artspacelifespace.com
