s o u l s p a c e

Welcome to s o u l s p a c e, a recently created art studio shared with artist Jacqueline Smith and poet/photographer Jo Lewis. The studio, which is on the second floor of Soughbridge Mill, is flooded with natural light and has panoramic landscape views. It is a space for ourselves and others to breathe, to nurture creativity and to be inspired. There are two artists' studio areas and a central workshop space designed to comfortably fit groups of up to 10. More importantly, we have 2 comfy sofas, coffee & tea making facilities, a wood burning stove and lots of books, photographs and objects of interest to inspire you. All in all, the perfect environment for being creative!

We welcome visitors to the studio as we have plenty of work to view on the walls and in browsers and we are happy to share our work-in-progress with you and show you how we go about it.

s o u l s p a c e opening times:

Monday:   12.30pm - 4.30pm
Tuesday:  12.30pm - 4.30pm
Friday:      12.30pm - 4.30pm
Saturday & Sunday by Appointment. (Contact: michaelhowleyartist@gmail.com)

If you are making a special journey, we suggest you ring ahead to make sure we are open as sometimes we may be at a show or event elsewhere.

Weekly Workshops

Whether you're a beginner or a more experienced artist, these flexible workshops allow me to respond to your interests. You may come with a subject in mind or certain media and techniques that you want to work with. On the other hand, you may have very little experience and need some initial guidance and advice to get you started. For much of the time, you will be working on your own pieces of work with practical assistance and constructive suggestions from myself.

Workshops run throughout the year and you can join at any time during a block. The price of workshops is £96 for an 8 week block.

Try before you buy!
I am currently offering you a free first session so that you can try out a workshop before deciding whether to book a block. If you enjoy the session and want to book the remainder of the block I will deduct the £12.00 from your block fee.

Workshop Times:

Workshop 1: Wednesday 10.15pm - 12.15pm
Workshop 2: Wednesday 1.15pm - 3.15pm
Workshop 3:  Thursday 10.15am - 12.15pm
Workshop 4:  Thursday 1.15pm - 3.15pm

Our address is : 
s o u l s p a c e  art studio, Unit 21b, Soughbridge Mill, Sough, Kelbrook, Lancs. BB18 6SZ

Coming from Colne direction towards Skipton on Colne Road, you will pass through Kelbrook and come to the sign for Sough. About 200 yards further on, beyond a right hand bend, you can see the mill on your right. (look out for the 'salvage' sign - a bicycle, strapped to a tree, which is just a bit further than the entrance to the mill for soulspace)


Again, coming from Colne direction, there is a small car park attached to the Mill just before the main building shown below. There are also parking spaces outside the building as shown, and first right after the mill building - Sough Lane. This takes you round the back of the building and you can walk through or round to get to the main door, which is towards the left of the building (below). There are also individual parking spaces along the roadside a little further on.
