Artist requires studio accommodation in august

Recommended Posts

I will be staying on shetland during the month of august. Looking for a studio space where I can also kip and cook tiny meals. Fridge would be nice. 
I paint watercolours of a large size, size a0 and larger. Mainly seascapes, for the obvious reasons I come to shetland.
I am an artist with a muscle wasting disease so a large table and a comfy mattress are a must. A winged chair is a plus... I dont care about staying in a messy studio, carpet is a no no....

I can afford up to 500 pound for the month.

can you tell me if you can provide the space? Anywhere on the mainland, near the coast, would be nice....

The Booth is Scalloway is a lovely space https://www.waspsstudios.org.uk/spaces/artist-space/the-booth/ but is likely booked up, and the Shorestation in Unst looks to be booked too https://www.airbnb.co.uk/rooms/884281

There are artist studio spaces in Bressay https://www.bressay.org/arts-crafts/studio-hire and I'm sure they'd be able to point you in the direction of affordable accommodation nearby.

Those are the only dedicated hireable studios I can think of, but I'm sure many other accommodation providers would be more than happy for you to paint.

As Colin says, you'd be lucky to get somewhere for a month in August for £500 but you might be lucky seeing as the tourist season probably won't be as busy as normal.
