The Straw Bale Studio – Eco-friendly tutorial space

About the Studio

In 2013 we successfully raised the funds to support the build of our eco-tutorial studio after generous grant funding from Creative Scotland, The Gannochy Trust, The CPF Trust and The Robertson Trust. The construction of the studio has also been made possible through the kind support we received from individual donations.

The eco-friendly studio is for one-to-one tutorials, workshops and readings. Outwith these times, the studio can be used as quiet writing space or for any other purpose. Yoga mats are available from the office.

The project has environmental sustainability at its very heart, utilising a passive solar heating system, solar/wind powered 12 volt electricity system, turf roofing and straw bale insulation. Steve James of Envisioneer.net was our project manager and builder for the construction.

If you would like to pledge your support by donating, your donation will go towards the upkeep of this unique building.
