The Mobile Studio
Saint Roberts was established to provide as many people as possible with the opportunity to experience working in a Studio, so the concept of a space that could be 'taken into the community' made complete sense. The studio provides a dedicated place for people to focus on the artistic process and develop their application of techniques in a relaxed environment.
The Rocket is a British Made, 23ft long, double axle, mobile studio that can comfortably accommodate 12 people. It has an Aluminium body-shell and is insulated with sheeps wool. We have plenty of light, a sink and storage for materials. There are three skylights that can be opened for extra ventilation, five opening windows and an air conditioning unit for use during warm weather. We have an extra wide door with ramp to enable wheel chair access. We also have a number of power sockets should they be required.
This picture was taken during the manufacturing process. At this stage the wool insulation was being added. Shortly after this the internal fit-out was completed, which included plumbing and electrics.
