Scotland’s first purpose-built home for street arts, providing space for hundreds of artists to create, experiment and hone their craft, and the bustling epicentre of a new street arts district across Partick, Yorkhill and Govan.
Launched at Yardworks Festival 2023, Yardworks Studio is the latest addition to our ever-expanding clutch of venues, studios and warehouses, offering a permanent, specially-designed base for artists to create work, and for our extensive community projects to flourish.
Situated in the Galvanizers Yard on the edge of Eastvale Place, the studio offers a heated workshop complete with a 6 metre high wall for the creation of large-scale artworks, specialist equipment, including extraction and ventilation, and flexible working spaces for artists, youth and community organisations. With a glazed wall at the front, the activities in the building can be seen from the street, giving the many people wandering past on their way to gigs, club nights and more a glimpse at the artworks being created.
Significantly, the Yardworks Studio acts as a catalyst for transforming GRID (Glasgow Riverside Innovation District) into a striking graffiti and street arts district. Linking the communities of Partick, Yorkhill and Govan, the project will see gable ends illuminated with new, large-scale murals, creating an open-air gallery trail and attracting visitors to the area.
