The Back Loft is a bright and spacious multi-disciplinary studio loft located at the back of  La Catedral artists studios. Refurbished to a bare minimum to preserve the raw fabric of its past time charm, this inspired space is an unconventional artists’ playground which has been turned into a creative hub since July 2017. The space now accommodates thirteen workstations for mixed media artists in an open plan set-up.
