First, some financial details...
Payments will be taken in advance by a recurring card payment each month.
***If you do not wish to pay by card for some reason, we will also take payments via bank transfer. To keep administrative costs and processing time to a minimum we take upfront payments in increments of either 3 months (£825) six months (£1650) or one year (£3300). Upfront payments are due one month in advance of the expiry date of the previous payment.
A refundable key deposit of £100 is due on March 1st. Your first monthly payment will be processed on April 1st. You will pay your first month's rent when you sign up to reserve your space.
If you sign up to start on March 1st, you will be entitled to a week's full studio and business training.
Once you are enrolled we will ask you to send professional images of your work to be included in the makers directory on our website, along with an artist’s statement (150 to 250 words). We will be taking photos of our makers for the website in February, so be prepared to come for that too.
Please note, at the moment we are ONLY taking reservations for people to begin on March 1st.
And some terms and conditions...
The minimum occupancy term at In Production is 6 months. Prices are valid for one year. You can expect this price to increase annually in line with inflation. You must give two month’s notice before cancelling your contract. Your contract will automatically renew at the end of year one, unless notice is given. Please note that unlike Turning Earth membership, this is a permanent studio rental and can’t be suspended.
All makers must clean communal areas on a schedule for an hour a week minimum, on a rota that will be drawn up by the studio and reviewed by members at quarterly meetings. Any disabilities that may impact your capacity to do a particular task should be communicated to the studio manager so that these can be taken into consideration.
All members are expected to keep all private storage areas, as well as work space clean. All personal storage shelves and the floors underneath should be thoroughly cleaned every two weeks.
Please note that all facilities outlined are subject to change as we find the best way to make the studio work. It’s still a work in progress at this stage, so information should be used for guidance only.
If you are interested in joining in the future, but cannot start on March 1st please join our mailing list here. Please note that spaces will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis.
In Production is designed as a non-profit collaborative workspace. To keep prices to a minimum, there is no budget to support makers through work-exchange. If you have financial difficulties and would like to supplement your income through teaching, there may be an opportunity for you to train as a Turning Earth teacher. Teaching a class a week can help cover your studio rental.
