Trinity Buoy Wharf

Our studios at Trinity Buoy Wharf in London’s Docklands house the main campus of our Foundation Year programme. Trinity Buoy Wharf is an inspiring part of London’s Docklands, buzzing with creatives and artists’ studios. 

Foundation Year - TBW

Building on the success of its first year the Foundation Year campus at Trinity Buoy Wharf has recently been expanded, with facilities split over three floors including:

  • Well-lit teaching studios
  • Sculpture studio
  • Fully-equipped intaglio print room where students can work with etching, collograph and monoprint
  • Photography darkroom
  • Kiln and ceramics facilities
  • Individual studio spaces
  • Apple Mac computers with the latest animation and design software
  • Reference art library
  • Common room and kitchen

Trinity Buoy Wharf’s unique riverside location and many historical landmarks and artefacts make it an ideal place to draw and paint. It is positioned on the north bank of the Thames, directly opposite the O2 Arena, in London’s Docklands. 

Trinity Buoy Wharf is a thriving creative community of over 500 people in industries ranging from fine arts and sculpture to design, photography and music. There is a 1940s style American diner and a café serving healthy soups and sandwiches on site.

In September 2016 we expanded into a large refurbished drawing studio, the Clore Drawing Studio, housed in the adjoining ‘Electricians Shop’. This purpose built space is primarily used for drawing workshops but also works as a multi-purpose space for group discussions, lectures, portfolio preparation and events.
