Iron House is committed to providing our artists with access to the community, which is why we run a quarterly open studio that allows the community and our network to come and interact with the artists and purchase works.
WELCOME TO IRON HOUSE STUDIOS
Alongside our Iron House venues, we are pleased to open our affordable studios for local artists situated onsite at Iron House. When we started building Iron House in December of 2018, our vision was to build a creative ecosystem, that started with unique events venues. The fact we are taking the next step in our plan is incredibly exciting for everyone in the team.
GROW AS AN ARTIST AT IRON HOUSE
Located in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter, situated in a historic industrial building, Iron House Studios offers local artists an opportunity to create in a unique environment next to our 3,400sq foot art gallery, with frequent visits from our local and national network, and also access to creative briefs from our clients before they are put out to tender. Prices starting at £90 ex VAT per month.
One of the key reasons we started Iron House was to enable local artists to showcase their work in a gallery setting without the expensive pricing, which is why we allow our artists to use unused dates in the events calendar to put pop ups on.
We are lucky to have developed a fantastic network of local and national contacts that our artists can tap into and help with career development. Pictured is Ruth Millington, Birmingham’s premier art critic and close friend of the gallery.
As Iron House runs a large number of events in a wide variety of categories, we have an increasing number of briefs that require unique creative elements. We will be looking to use our in-house artists to help provide additional income for them.
We've been fortunate at Iron House to have worked with a number of fantastic organisations and charities, both locally and nationally. We are passionate about community and have taken great proud in being the platform to bring people together, offline.
A few kind words about Iron House..
Iron House is an epically sized building with a multiple of rooms to choose from. We used the grounds to host ITV This Mornings search for Toto film. The staff went above and beyond to clear all the spaces we needed the night before and set stage up and plasma screens just how we desired. The place looks amazing and has everything you’d wish for from a filming perspective and the staff there totally understood our needs and just got it. It’s a great new venue in Birmingham. Book now before someone else does. We were very happy. Thanks again to everyone that helped to make our show come to life 😉
I’ve been to the Iron House for a few events since it opened. I knew as soon as I walked in on the first day it would be the perfect location for my new project launch. Everything about it was perfect, the space, the aesthetics, the staff. I’ve since had my launch and everyone was helpful in every way, they helped my put my displays up, gave suggestions on the layouts and also helped me to pack everything away. Would I go there again? Most definitely without a doubt. Thanks to Jack and his team for making the evening memorable for me and for each of my guests that came through the door.
We held an exhibition ‘Still: Stories from the Jewellery Quarter’ at Iron House during October and November. It was the perfect space for the exhibition – light and spacious, with an industrial feel which was perfect for the theme of the exhibition. Visitors commented how much they enjoyed the gallery too!
Recently Had an 4 day Event here, Absolutely brilliant outcome. Excellent venue brilliant service. Manager Jack was brilliant he assisted us in everything we needed. Definitely would recommend and definitely will use it again.
Amazing space, great hospitality very friendly. I recommended Iron House and will definitely book again. Thank you !
This is a fab venue to hold a party, it’s like being in a New York loft. So many of my friends commented on how cool it was. Jack and his team couldn’t have done enough for us, from drinks choices to setting up and they even allowed us to have some of the gallery pictures on display. Thank you Jack and co for a great night.
Ironhouse is such a great venue because it is so versatile! Big open spaces, and plenty of room for exhibitions etc, so you have the freedom to really create the space you need to suit your event. I held my recent Birmingham Creatives Social here and it was perfect, the bar is a really good size for the venue too, and the staff/owners were extremely helpful throughout planning stages and during the event itself. Highly recommended!
“The Iron House is the perfect venue for a birthday party that you want to make your own stamp on! Staff will go above and beyond to help and the communication has been great. Highly recommended”
“I highly recommend Iron House as an excellent event space in Birmingham. The space is very versatile and the team are super helpful. Jack was tremendously accommodating for the needs of our event and ensured that the physical alterations to the venue I requested were in place with very short notice. Our clients were absolutely delighted with our event and they expressed how impressed they were with the venue, so huge credit and thanks goes to Iron House. We will be back!”
“Iron House is an amazing venue. Not only the space but also Ross, Jack and Darren who run this very attractive new gallery. I am very proud that my students and I had the honour to be the ones who held the very first Iron House exhibition. Iron House is offering a professional and contemporary gallery space suitable in style and location to add to the ever growing art and culture scene of Birmingham and the Midlands. Space and structure allow art work to sit in an appropriately industrial and yet uplifting minimalistic setting. Ross, Jack, Darren and their team were ever helpful and flexible in accommodating our needs throughout the hanging, private view, opening period up to the take down. It was a blast!”
