THE HIVE | OPEN STUDIOS

The Koppel Project Hive
The Koppel Project Hive is happy to announce its’ Winter Edition of Open Studios. We will be hosting a Christmas themed market where artists have been invited to sell small pieces as well as performances and featured guests.
The Hive Open Studios is an invitation to discover the working environment of a diverse selection of emerging and established London-based artists. Twice a year, The Hive’s artists display their works in progress and discuss them with curators, collectors, and the public.
The main aim of the open studios is to showcase the vibrancy of The Hive community artists. Working in large communal spaces, this event allows artists to illustrate their individual practices and vision and shows how they fit into the collective force of the community. Throughout the course of the weekend, visitors can see artists at work, take part in demonstrations and workshops, talks.

The Koppel Project Hive supports 100 artists’ studios in the heart of the City of London. Artists share large communal studios comprised of 15m2 units, and also have use of attached project spaces and shared communal areas. The cost of each studio unit includes utilities, security, and furniture. The studios have very large windows providing good natural light, but limited ventilation. For this reason, any artistic practices using toxic products are strictly forbidden.
Access to the building is from 8am–8pm Monday-Friday, 10am–6pm Saturday, and 10am – 4pm Sunday. There is a full-time security guard at the front desk.
