Flax Art Studios

Flax Art Studios are based in Belfast, Northern Ireland. We support and promote emerging and established contemporary visual artists from Belfast and beyond, through studio provision.

We Provide Studio Spaces with 24 hour access for over 50 contemporary visual artists along with our sculpture workshop facilities including wood, plaster, casting, digital fabrication, textile, and large internal/eternal workspaces.

We also offer Media production space including a photography studio, film studio and sound recording booths. Flax Art Studios workshop is the only facility of its kind in Northern Ireland and we aim to make it accessible to all artists in Northern Ireland.

Flax Art Studios is now in it’s 30th year and continues to aim to significantly contribute to the regions’ visual art practice through studio provision and resources and is the only studio dedicated to sculptural practice and provision in Northern Ireland. Flax acts as a hub for professional development, international networking opportunities; and fostering greater understanding through outreach and engagement activity.

At Flax Art Studios we run a variety of residencies supporting the arts in Northern Ireland, including a Graduate Residency, Curator Residency, Production Residency, International Residency, International Exchange, and soon to be launched Experimental Filmmaker Residency.
