West Park Place has both individual studios and open plan rooms that are shared by multiple artists, encouraging collaboration.

This property was purchased by Wasps from Edinburgh City Council in 2021 and provides studio space for around seventy artists. Regular life drawing sessions led by tenants are held on the ground floor.

With over 40 years worth of expertise, we are the UK’s largest provider of studio space for artists and creative industries.

Tenants of the Wasps community receive the following benefits:

  • An inclusive rent
  • Studio security – all our buildings are either owned or on long term rentals across the estate
  • 24/7 access all year round (excluding hot-desking memberships)
  • Being part of our community of almost 1,000 artists and creatives based in 20 buildings across Scotland
  • Ability to join the Own Art scheme through Wasps – Own Art allows for an artist’s clients to spread the cost of an artwork priced from £100 to £25,000 over 10 months with no interest. Using Own Art can help you close that extra sale – turning a £500 artwork into a more affordable proposition of £50 per month, for example
  • Support and expertise from Wasps’ staff
  • Promotion on the Wasps website (receiving tens of thousands of visitors per month) with an self-managed artist profile and shop through the community page
  • Access to the Wasps Tenant Portal – an exclusive online platform for tenants to find out about updates and opportunities from across the network
  • Exhibiting and selling opportunities through our arts programme including exhibitions across the network, discounted rates for market stalls, Open Studios events and inclusion in art fairs

Unfortunately there is very limited disabled access at West Park as there is no lift and some of the flooring is carpeted.

getting here

Parking at the studios is limited. West Park Place runs directly off Dalry Road, a five minute walk from Haymarket station with many surrounding bus links. From Haymarket station, you would turn right and walk up Dalry Road. Stay to the right hand side of the road and you will see West Park Place, about five minutes up on your right. It is a very small street and the building is surrounded by student accommodation.
