Drawing Projects UK is a centre for research, development, production and promotion of exhibitions, events and workshops in drawing and contemporary art.

Formed in 2009 by Professor Anita Taylor to develop and promote research initiatives in drawing, including the Jerwood Drawing Prize, the new centre opened at Bridge House in Trowbridge in 2015.

Built in 1929, Bridge House is a landmark building adjacent to Trowbridge railway station. It houses the Drawing Projects UK office, drawing centre project space and training room, meeting rooms and workspaces for artists, designers, makers and creative, cultural and educational enterprises. A café will open in 2016.

Programmes include exhibitions, drawing sessions, projects, workshops, talks and events and we provide mentoring and professional development services for artists and curators.

Studios and Workspaces

Drawing Projects UK has 12 self-contained studios and workspaces for individual artists, designers and makers, creative enterprises, and educational, community and cultural organisations. All spaces are located on the ground floor and have excellent natural light and generous height with central heating and range in size from 90-400sqft.

There are also meeting rooms for hire and break out spaces for more informal get-togethers. We hold regular networking events, cultural events, drawing sessions, projects, workshops and exhibitions, and our cafe will soon open.

Bridge House is a landmark building in Trowbridge, the county town of Wiltshire, and is adjacent to Trowbridge railway station with regular train services to the cities of Bath, Bristol, Cardiff, Gloucester, London, Portsmouth, Southampton and nearby Bradford on Avon, Bruton, Frome and Westbury. There is a small car park for permit and disabled parking, and several public car parks nearby.
