Three art studio buildings set around The Courtyard, nestle into the Sussex Downland at the foot of Kingley Vale near Chichester.
Current residents work as painters, sculptors, textile and installation artists.
Artists’ studio spaces vary: we have some individual studios or workshops and short term working space may also be available.
The artists at Courtyard Studios take part in Chichester Open Studios Art Trail. The studios are open to the public; we offer visitors the opportunity to see our art in the making and to view and purchase works of art.
Our enterprise has now expanded to include more family members and more activities!
- Run by Terry Hancock, we house a comprehensive framing studio offering creative and original solutions to an artwork, collection or subject. This can involve bespoke frames, boxes and settings for your work, using original or made materials. You can find out more at Reframe Chichester
