Open Studio Orientation – Supplemental

Storage (flat file and lockers) at Open Studio

Long-term active storage is reserved for those who commit to the yearly access pass.

Monthly storage is available for those who work month on and month off, with no storage carryover. These are $20/month/flat file or locker.

For those accessing the studio using day passes or month passes, we encourage them to transport their paper in a portfolio and their inks and other supplies in a tackle box, or a tool trolley with wheels (similar to this one: https://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/olympia-folding-pack-roll-cart-55-lb-1420967p.1420967.html).
