[OFFSET Sheffield] Studio Visit with Peter & Paul
As part of their collaboration with Squarespace, OFFSET have launched a series of interviews as part of Squarespace Studio Series as they prepare to open their doors in Sheffield on Friday.
To kick things off they talked to Lee from Peter & Paul about everything from the daily routine at the studio and how they work till the job is done. They’ve got the scoop on Heeley (which is apparently the new Berlin) and more!
What is the area like where your studio is based in terms of shops, galleries, bars, cafes, restaurants, amenities, etc? Do you have much interaction with others, creative or otherwise, in the locality?
Our studio is an old converted school that we named and branded. We helped launch the place, had parties here with Jarvis and Richard Hawley DJing, invited an artist to draw on the wall and were one of the first tenants. We’d like to think that we have set the tone for what it’s like to work here. After the parties, the place filled up quick.
Heeley is the new Berlin… or so we thought it was a few years ago…It’s out of the centre of Sheffield and therefore away from any of the accepted cultural areas that become over subscribed. We’re up on a hill overlooking other parts of the city and the area itself isn’t really awash with galleries, bars or cafés. There’s a good pub or two. A community park, a climbing rock and a butcher. It’s that sort of place.
Head on over to read the full interview over on the OFFSET site and grab yourself 10% off Squarespace subscriptions!
