Prospect is known for it's artistic flair and stylish shops, with Prospect Road being an advocate for South Australian creatives and the support of small local businesses. With local fashion designers, quirky cafes and unique gift shops calling Prospect Road home, it is no wonder that Little City Studio has nestled itself in nicely.
With it's high beamed ceilings and pastel wall art, Little City Studio is the ultimate co-working area for any creative mind. Owned and ran by Prospect locals Dave and Leah Menner, this clever creative couple wanted to offer their community something new and fresh. A change of scenery for people to come and drum away at their keyboards, the space is very easy on the eye, with natural light, timber work desks and comfy couches. The studio also offers a space for people to hold classes and workshops. Once such class was held this week- a life drawing class run by a local artist.
A sold out workshop event, the atmosphere in the studio was a clam but chatty one, as people from all walks of life mingled over the wine and nibbles provided. All drawing materials were supplied, making it easy for people to just walk in and start to draw. It wasn't long until everyone had black charcoal fingers and facial expressions of deep concentration. Charcoal and wine proved to be a very interesting Thursday night experience.
The workshop has been running for the month of September by local artist, Jenni, and was open to beginners as well as experienced artists. This made for a very interesting bundle of interpretations, as each person created their own life drawing masterpiece, all completely different from the next. With pastel walls, excellent lighting, funky pot plants PLUS cheese and wine, it really was everything that you could want from a creative workshop.
Little City Studio encourages and supports local creatives and business owners, providing a space for them to come and work as well as meet and chat. A networkers heaven, the space runs all different types of workshops, from blogging to sewing and everything in between.
