The Studio

Nestled on the second floor of the Old ANZ Bank building we really are a haven away from the bustle of Upper Hutt City Centre.

Fully equipped with quality props and blessed with an abundance of natural light we are so proud of this little space. You will often find it filled with laughter and dancing shadows from the tree outside our windows.

Would you like to use this space for your workshop or classes?

Would you like to be part of the team? Please, we would love for you to:
