The Federation Studio is a dynamic studio space for artists and visitors to Granville Island.


Additionally featuring the Federation Classroom, a classroom space for the FCA's own educational services, like the Foundations Program.


The classroom space will also be available to rent for artists looking for space to host their own workshops and classes.


Seven studios are available on a monthly rental basis.


Three studios on the main floor are accessible to the general public and are a great show-and-sale opportunity for artists.


The remaining four studios are upstairs, away from the public with your comrades. However, if these artists all agree, this too can be publicly accessible for greater exposure and sales potential.


Featuring beautiful natural light and wooden beams, the Federation Studio is a creation oasis in the heart of Granville Island!
