Croydon Creative Coworking Space
Turf is an artist-run space and charity located in central Croydon, run by people with significant personal connections to Croydon.
We created our original artist studio membership scheme back in 2015 in response to the lack of space for creatives living in the Croydon and South London area (as early career artists needing this ourselves!). In line with our charity objective to support artists on low incomes, the memberships aim to give creatives genuinely affordable space and support to keep working locally by utilising otherwise empty ‘meanwhile use’ spaces.
All of the fees from memberships go directly back into supporting Turf’s programme, collectives and future.

SPACE & COSTS:
Based in central Croydon, our bright creative open coworking space is shared with 7 other artists & makers.
Included in the membership is your own dedicated desk.
Designed and made by us at Turf, each desk has its own storage compartment you can lock up at the end of the day!
We created this new type of desk-based membership in response to demand from creatives who;
– are just starting out and want to take the first step into (or get back into) having a studio space
– have a practice which is small in scale
– want to work in an open, collaborative environment with others
The space is 5 minutes from West Croydon station and 10 minutes from East Croydon station.
Each desk costs £85 per month, with a limited number of 40% concessions available for local creatives aged 25-and-under through the Croydon Creative Enterprise Zone.
