Art Studios for Rent
At Tearaway Types, we place a strong emphasis on supporting creatives and artists by providing creative spaces for rent in the South-East of Melbourne. We have four studios on the premises which are available for artists’ to rent. Rent also includes use of the exhibition space as well as 24/7 access. Based in Hughesdale, near Oakleigh Train Station, we are accessible to residents of Hughesdale, Carnegie, Murrumbeena, Bentleigh, Malvern East, Chadstone and the surrounding areas.
Workshops and Casual Classes
At Tearaway Types we offer casual art and craft classes, children’s art classes, short courses and intensive workshops from our studios in Melbourne. You do not need to be a practicing artist to join our classes - they are open for everyone to attend regardless of artistic ability.
Through our workshops and casual classes we hope that everyone, at whatever skill level, has the opportunity to:
Learn new skills
Connect with likeminded people
Support local artists by attending!
As a creative space for hire, we are keen to hear from all types of artists including painters, jewellers, designers, filmmakers, illustrators, art directors, costume designers, make-up artists, sound designers, animators, sculptors, visual artists, music producers, film events and pop up shops! We offer mural commissions, studio space to hire, as well as a gallery space.
Not your typical Gallery
The gallery has been created with the intention of providing a space to meet with clients or exhibit works. It is available as a pop-up shop or exhibition space. We have kept the original chemists’ counter as a nod to the history of the building and removed the roof to expose the original beams. It is a creative space for emerging and established artists to utilise.
