Artist in the Attic: A working studio space in Ilkley available for creative residencies, making and sharing. This is a new initiative, opening up an artist’s studio in central Ilkley, providing an affordable space for creatives. If you need a place where you can start, develop or finish a creative project, please get in touch.

Ilkley Arts are making available a studio space in the centre of Ilkley and are looking to engage with artists from different disciplines who would benefit from gaining access to a working studio. We have worked with three visual artists and a writer to date. 

The studio is in the attic space of The Castle Collective situated the The Manor House Courtyard which already provides a home for a range of creative companies and practitioners. Further to this we would encourage applicants to develop links with Art School Ilkley and the regular classes and workshops it provides, to open up channels of communication and conversations with artists working in the surrounding area and The Manor House Heritage Centre and Art Gallery. 

Ilkley Arts is a small charity run by volunteers and has 3 main strands of activity – the annual Ilkley Art Trail, the Ilkley Arts studio that is a venue for exhibitions, workshops and is also home to the Ilkley Art School and the Ilkley Arts Membership Scheme where artists can come together to share ideas and thoughts about their practice.

Our core mission at Ilkley Arts is to promote and celebrate the arts in Ilkley and surrounding areas to enrich the lives of residents and visitors and to support and help the development of artists.

We are looking to offer the space for a period of three months at a time at an all-inclusive cost of £150 per month giving you daily access 8am-10pm.
