The Pitch & Putt Buiding a Temporary Home

Our Future Vision

Studio space, hot desking, printing carousel, dark room, photoshop, sound equipment curated library, therapy space and more. The Pearl Exchange will offer studio & workshop space.

Our aim is to offer open access to resources and equipment. Some studios will be rented permanently via our membership scheme and some will be available on a pay-as-you-go basis. In most cases, to use our facilities without having a permanent space, you will need to register and reserve a morning or afternoon. We will also offer courses, resources and support to professional practitioners,practicing artists,creative start ups and individuals and any young adults interested through the Exchange & Memberships.

We will for our Future set up be listening and accessing from our pilots what facilities people want and need, but at this stage this is what we imagine would be the kind of set up:

Print Facilities

Including carousel, screens, ink and accessories. We will be adding to our facilities and availability.

Photography + Film

Dark room, processing, studio, cameras, Photoshop/ editing software, screen and projector.


Sewing machines, printing, fabric, pattern cutting.
