Flexible and affordable studio space for fashion students + graduates
Renting a professionally equipped fashion studio by the day, week or month helps fashion students and graduates affordably deliver their collections and develop their future careers in the industry.
Fashion students and graduates are seeing the benefits of having a textile studio that’s available on a flexible, pay-as-you-go basis in London, instead of relying on cramped university facilities - or paying expensive rents on permanent space.
Zana Agafonva, a BA (Hons) Fashion Design student at The Cass completed her entire final collection at the Building BloQs Textile Studio in north London; "I was searching for a studio that had the space and equipment I needed to complete my final collection and BloQs was a rare find in London that offered both. The facilities are amazing; the walking foot sewing machine was a godsend and because membership is pay-as-you-go I only book in and pay when I need to."
"With my final collection done I'll be graduating this summer and will continue to base myself at BloQs as I look to launch my own projects. Because there is such a diverse community of creative disciplines here I'm always inspired. I’m also learning how other BloQs resources, like the laser cutter, can complement my work and help to grow my practice."
Building BloQs is London’s largest open workshop with professional space and equipment to work in wood, metal, textiles, paint, laser and CNC.
Pay-as-you-go membership to the Building BloQs Textile Studio provides you with a pattern cutting table, a Brother S1000A straight stitch machine and size 8 mannequin along with access to a full range of professional machines:
- Coverstitch Machine
- 4 Thread Overlocker
- Walking Foot Machine
- Industrial Buttonholer
- Rolled Hem Machine
- Industrial Steam Irons
