The Bridge Workshop on the lower level of the mill is available for rent on a one-off or regular weekly basis. This is an ideal opportunity for outside artists to have a regular place to work or offer their own classes at the mill without the commitment of a full-time studio. Equipped with tables, chairs, mini-easels and individual storage, this is your bridge to becoming part of the Alton Mill creative community.

To organize a group activity involving multiple disciplines, to book the Bridge Workshop or another space for your own master class, please contact Margi Taylor at Creative Events Management (519) 940-0935 or send Margi an email .
