"Our business is thriving, and Hackney Downs Studios has played an important part in that success. It’s really important as an independent business owner to feel part of a community, and Eat Work Art really facilitates that, not only for residents, but for the wider community too."

"I’ve been at Hackney Downs Studios for a few years now and it’s been great. We’ve built a sociable community, all working on different projects and in different industries, but always ready to help each other, give advice or just go to the pub."
Tom Fry
"The light in my studio is incredible, the ceilings are so tall I can finally work at scale I feel more comfortable with and the Hackney Downs Studios team have been exceptional in welcoming me into the complex. I have space to do everything here, from spray-painting work to being behind my computer editing, drawing on my desk or just entertaining collectors or friends who stop by."
Max Radford
"Hackney Downs Studios is so vibrant and busy, you can feel that work is being done and people are enjoying themselves, that really contributes to the feeling of the place for me. All the staff are personable and helpful."
