Langstane Place Studios

Langstane Studios, is a former print works. With support from the Scottish Arts Council Capital Lottery Fund, Aberdeen City Council and Scottish Enterprise Grampian, we were able to buy and redevelop this building back in 2005. This building houses 32 studios over 3 floors and currently supports 39 artists.

In addition to studios, this building also has a shop-front project space run by Photoghost - a photographic production facility. 

Langstane Place will be open as part of Wasps Open Studios 2015
