Studio Location Our silversmithing workshops are held in Studio 1, The Stables, 35-37 Tontine Street, CT20 1JT. The front of the building, which is lilac, houses the 35-37 Gallery and has The Stables written in orange on the grey sign above. Please ring the large buzzer button on the keypad and someone will come and let you in. The door to the rear of the building, which is situated in the Mill Bay Car Park, is next to two large green containers so just knock on the door for entry.
Parking The nearest car park is the Mill Bay one which is off Tontine Street: Turn left at the Quarterhouse, then left again and head towards the back of the car park. The parking fee is £1.00 per hour up to a maximum of 5 hours or £5.00 for the whole day. There is no evening parking fee after 6 pm.
Wheelchair Access The studio is located on the ground floor and is wheelchair-accessible from the front entrance on Tontine Street. There is also a disabled loo on the same floor.
