What is Studio Eleven Gallery?
Studio Eleven is a gallery, studio and workshop space. We offer specialist studio space for ceramicists and a shared workshop for printmaking. Events include artists talks, workshops, hire of the studio space and a rolling programme of exhibitions. The gallery at number 12 comprises of a main space for wall-based and plinth mounted work, and three display cases. Our new workshop space will be on the first floor which also consists of a large, shared studio space.
Studio Eleven is a Hull City of Culture 2017 partner. A strategic partner in developing the bid and the wider promotion of Hull as a Culture City with interventions exhibited in London and beyond by Adele Howitt. During 2017 we delivered a contemporary exhibition programme with events, workshops, and special performances by Hull Time Based Arts. In 2017 we set up the special “Made in Hull” display case with its own rolling programme of exhibitions of local handmade wares.
Since it was established, Studio Eleven has continually pioneered the cause of Hull’s cultural quarter in the Fruit Market area, particularly Humber Street. The gallery and workshop has relocated to number 12 on Humber Street in March 2017. Eleven is in a prime visitor location, close to Hull Marina, The Deep, Hull Museums and the newly refurbished Ferens Art Gallery. Eleven and the already established creative businesses on Humber Street have recently been joined by the new Humber Street Gallery.
Studio Eleven workshop and gallery was established in 2009 by artists Adele Howitt and Rob Moore. Adele continues to direct the enterprise, enlisting the support of Clare Holdstock, and a voluntary team of artists and potters who use the studio space .
