Jubilee Stores Studios is an artist studios and participatory arts complex owned and run by Quay Arts. It is located just along the river from the Quay Arts Centre and houses 7 artist studios and hosts a range of courses and workshops.
Built in 1924, the building was used to store grain by James Thomas and Co. Ltd, a local miller company. The lease for the building was sold in the mid 1930’s and it was taken over by the British Road Services to store various goods. By the mid 1970’s, the building had fallen into a state of disrepair before being taken over by Quay Arts to be used as a participatory arts complex.
The conversion and establishment of Jubilee Stores Studios took place following Quay Arts capital grant of over £1 million from the Arts Council England’s National Lottery Board in 1996.
Jubilee Stores Studios provides emerging artists and makers with a base from which they can develop and grow their artistic practice, whilst also providing the Island with a unique cultural dynamic through developing the creative industries. Resident artists create work in a wide range of media, from printmaking to digital media, jewellery to visual arts and crafts.
Resident artists also offer courses and workshops through the Quay Arts seasonal programme. Please click here to view Quay Arts current courses and workshops.
Even a little money can make a big difference at Quay Arts
Did you realise that when you buy a cup of freshly ground barista coffee in our Café Bar, you are helping to support the cultural life of the Isle of Wight? However, the generosity of our supporters goes beyond sales of food, drink and theatre tickets. Gifts of money, time, and even specific items make a huge difference to the amount of work we can do. Together, we can continue to enrich the lives of islanders and visitors with our fantastic programme of events.
See below some of the ways you can help us offer unique opportunities for education and development – today and long into the future.
