Where to rent studio space in Toronto

Posted by Robyn Urback / February 3, 2012

Studio Space TorontoRenting a studio space in Toronto may be a labourious task if you don't know where to look. While a good start might be online classifieds such as Craigslist and Kijiji, more often than not you could end up looking at a page full of pseudo-studio crawl spaces. Artists who are in the market for a workspace know that "shelter from the rain" is not the only factor to consider, with demands ranging from nearby basins and wide door frames to high ceilings and proper ventilation, with more conditions to consider based on the project and materials used. Before setting up that easel in a stuffy warehouse basement, you might want to check out some of the options at these communal studio spaces.

Artscape
Artscape is perhaps the first name that comes to mind when looking for a studio space, simply because it offers a variety of options in several locations throughout Toronto. There are shared spaces, private studios, and work/live options to rent, sublet, or own, each popping up at sporadic intervals of availability at the Distillery, Liberty Village, Wychward Barns, and beyond. Rates vary depending on location, size, and number of artists in the space.

Akin Collective
While it doesn't look much from the outside, artists are constantly toiling away inside this shared space near Queen and Dufferin. Akin offers a total of 2,000-square-feet of studio and shared work space, which renters can access at any time, any day of the week. Rates at $100 for a monthly membership, though shorter term commitments can also be made.

Walnut Studios
Walnut Studios offers four connected-ish studio spaces in one, located in and old industrial building on Walnut Avenue, west of King and Bathurst. As well as offering space for artists to work on projects, Walnut Studios hosts the occasional show, exhibit, or other special event. The artist studios are open and communal (so hermits need not apply) and are available for monthly rental rates around $199 to $349.

Karma Creative
Karma now has a new studio at 3962 Chesswood Drive (yes, that's north of Bloor... north of Sheppard, actually), which offers a rarity in the world of Toronto artist studios: ready vacancies. The new facility (which is shared with North Toronto Art Studio Collective) is geared up to host a variety of programs and workshops, as well as receive new artists in its shared open studio. Studio spaces come with 24-7 access and loading areas for big projects, and rates generally start around $250 per month.

White House Studio Project
The name here has nothing to do with American politics and everything to do with the colour of the original building. (They're artists — what do you expect?) Started as a group initiative in 2008, White House has moved and grown to accommodate artists of all creeds who are keen on working in a collective environment. The 2,600-square foot studio includes a woodworking area and screen printing facilities, with room for about 25 individuals. Contact for studio availability and rates.

The Gladstone
The Gladstone Hotel is not just for Melody Bar elbow-rubbing and the odd erotic fair (though it tends to do both pretty well). It also has rooms dedicated to artists working on short-term projects, available starting at $550 a month. The WiFi-equipped studios come with private or shared bathrooms, and are also available for daily or weekly rentals. At least you won't have to go far for a drink.

Influx CreativeSpace
Right at Richmond and Spadina, the space available at Influx are geared toward hosting your own workshop. Complete with storage areas, heaters and fans, and "inspirational" exposed bricks, Influx offers 400-square-feet of studio to be yours, available for 24-7 access and wireless internet. Rates vary based on rental agreement (month to month, three month, six month terms), but generally hover around $400 per month.

For artists who work in print media (screenprinting, lithography, intaglio & relief printing) and who need access to shared equipment such as presses, Open Studio has a full set-up for traditional print media and provides a number of rental options, ranging from a day all the way through to a full year. We also offer classes for those wishing to learn print media and exhibitions of contemporary print-based art work.

I'm looking for a space to set up a small wood-shop of my own using my own tools. Small table saw, chop saw etc. Preferably in the downtown area. Anyone know of any gems, or even non-gems, that would fit the bill? I get the sense the art collective type arrangements may not be ideal for making a lot of noise. Any insight in to this would be appreciated.

Even the "stuffy warehouse basement" and "shelter from the rain" type spaces mentioned above sound pretty good to me.

Hi,

We are a small design firm that is looking for a studio space for our office.
We have a number of leads on larger, brick and mortar type spaces that we can lease but we just don't need all that space.

We are looking for 2-3 other small start-ups or private designers to share a collaborative space with.
Something large enough and open enough that we can share printers, wifi etc but we don't have to work or think or talk over one another.

I have posted a picture below of the type of space we have looked at and want to lease.

Please let me know if you are interested.
We would prefer other designers or designer types but open to ideas.

I don't think any type of retail or service oriented enterprise (ie massage, nails or yoga) would be a good fit.
I was thinking mainly of designers or consultants, etc. who need a fun, inspiring place to work and who need to move beyond working at coffee shops.
I know we need to!

call me at 416 882 7395 if you think this is a good fit or if you have a space in mind

I am looking for someone to sponsor me with a studio that I could use twice per week. It's for a project that I am doing to fight Bullying. A musical destined for Broadway called, "MUTE".

I don't have much of a budget but the show is fantastic! I will agree to pay after I gain some proceeds from the show. Anyone interested?

I do not understand why people would spend money to rent studio spaces when they can use their own room for free. These people got to have money to burn

If you don't understand you should try learning about the requirements of photography, film, dance and other art forms requiring more space than "their own rooms".
Once you've learned more, you will understand.

Hello,

My boyfriend and I are looking for a live/work space for rent. He is a musician/recording engineer/ producer who runs his own studio and we would like to move into Toronto and live where he works. We would need one bedroom and something with tolerance for some noise (we would soundproof).

Does anyone know where I can find such a place?

Thanks!

I'm a writer looking for a place where I can work steadily in solitude. I require very little: at least one window, a power outlet, and an entrance that I can use at any time--the space itself can be closet-sized; I'd even rent a shed, if it was nice enough. My budget is extremely limited, but I would be an ideal renter--I'm quiet, reliable, and all I care about is my work. My budget is limited. I am located in the Bloor/Lansdowne area, but I am interested in anywhere within a reasonable biking distance. Please send all proposals to lookingforastudio@gmail.com. Thank you.

There are a couple of neat, small offices available in the building I rent in.

Probably 150 sq. feet each with floor to ceiling windows that face east, a nice, open foyer outside on the 2nd floor. Shared kitchen and bathroom. Parking and wifi.
Quiet, secure building and well managed.
It is in Leaside and very close to the new Longos and the big but unfortunately rather suburban plaza they just installed.
Definitely not downtown but a great option for those in Leaside or north Toronto!
