CADs Studios

An empty space transformed into a multi-purpose arts complex.

The Story so far...

Set up 6 years ago, from a handful of spaces on Kelham Island, CADS has expanded into a network of sites around Sheffield.

This April we’ve launched CADS Space, a wholly charity-owned trading arm which will focus solely on the development of our versatile workspaces for independent social, digital and creative industries and individuals across the city.

CADS SPACE provides studios to rent for all forms of creative activity, from painters and jewellery making, to fashion design, record labels and musicians, based over six ex-industrial and ex-office premises.

Whether it’s arts exhibitions, music performances, film and photography shoots, fashion shows or social meetings, our range of large, versatile, exhibition areas and space for hire that are ideal for hosting any type of activity.
