330 Studios is a community of Artists and Craftspeople based in South Bermondsey, (just off the Old Kent Road)

All occupants pursue their own individual studio work (see their pages) but between them they have a wide range of skills and facilities which are often shared. This has led to a number of collaborative projects and commissions for local museums, schools, public parks and gardens. In this way 330 Studios is unusual, and the result is a more intimate connection with the local community and its environmental projects. This is an important aspect of the Studios ethos.

In 1997 some dilapidated buildings were bought by Tam Giles, Marcus and Arthur de Mowbray

Ten years on and after much renovation and improvement, these three now have live/work spaces for themselves and more which is let out to other artists, sculptors, printmakers and woodworkers.

All these have come here through friends, local contacts, word-of-mouth and shared interests. Each has his/her own individual practice but gradually two or more of us have found it convenient to share experience and skills for carrying out projects in local schools, museums, parks and public spaces. Over the years 330 Studios has grown into a rather different sort of Artist's studios. Apart from personal studio work, the Studios is an active and collaborative force for community projects in the London area.
