Everyone who works with textiles, in any capacity, is welcome to become a member of Textiles Hub London.
We’re based in a bright, two-storey studio in central London near West Hampstead stations on the Jubilee Line and the Overground (that has Lime bikes) and just one stop from King’s Cross St Pancras on Thameslink – see map below – with desks and communal working space downstairs and chillout, meeting place and storage upstairs. The studio is west-facing and looks out over leafy Kilburn Grange Park. There are ten Pay & Display parking places (Mon – Fri 8.30am – 6.30pm) immediately outside (payable via RingGo locations 13135 and 13136) and just around the corner. There’s an indoor bicycle parking bay next to the recycling and fresh clay storage area. There’s a community cafe, Cafe Addis, and a corner shop opposite. Five minutes away there are lots of cafes and takeaways on West End Lane and Kilburn High Road as well as The Village Haberdashery, fabrics at Kilburn Market, TRAID, Oxfam (plus lots more well-stocked charity shops), Fashion Workspace, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Primark, Poundland, Homebase, Waitrose, M&S, Gail’s Bakery, Feng Sushi, Domino’s Pizza, JoJo Maman Bebe, West Hampstead Libary, West Hampstead Farmer’s Market, flower shops and more. We also have Open Studios every June and November with Maker Markets, Curator’s Talks, Textile Tours, etc.

This is very reasonably priced, so feel free to mail us your request here. If you’re keen now, place your returnable holding deposit via the Paypal button below stating your preferred ‘first of the month’ starting dates.
Alternatively, a “One Month Only Membership” is now offered for a different kind of Textiles Design development opportunity, one that gives you real focus and professional support.
The One Month Only Membership allows studio access on Third Wednesdays from 1.15pm til 6.15pm to focus your mind on a particular project, goal or task in hand. You can develop your project with the help of our founder, Emma Neuberg (External Examiner in Textile Design at the Royal College of Art), during this time. You can arrange with her, ahead of time, which Textiles Hub London apparatus you’d like to use. This is particularly useful for those with busy schedules, recent graduates, visitors to the UK on a short-term basis and those who want to expand their portfolios through specific projects and techniques. You’ll need to bring your own sundries (ie. items such as inks, brushes, papers, masking tape, fabrics, pigments, yarns, foils, adhesives and binders). Emma can advise on where to get these.
A One Month Only Membership offers individuals a focussed, convenient and versatile developmental experience.
It also means you:
- have a write-up and be featured on the Textiles Hub London website;
- showcase your work at Textiles Hub London on the Third Wednesday evening event during your month;
- gain teaching and pecha kucha practise at Textiles Hub London on the Third Wednesday evening event (from 7.30pm – 8pm) during your month;
