Scawfell Street is a curatorial studio run by Alexandra Bootherstone based in Hoxton, East London. The studio promotes young artists and designers by developing exhibition and publication projects. The studio also provides subsidised desk-space and exhibition resources to selected individuals and collaboratives. Our online shop and exhibition programme showcases artworks, limited editions, books and zines, produced by our partners, residents and artists.

Scawfell Street develops public art programmes in social spaces and publishes the magazine WAMBAM twice a year. The studio runs alongside ANDOR Gallery, DOS Studio, Hato Press and Ponto Studio, in a creative building run by the organisation Future Studio. Over 5000 square feet, situated close to Hoxton station, the building supports a growing creative community of galleries, studios, desks, and retail space.


The Scawfell Street studio offers large independent desk spaces for selected illustrators from £30 per week.

The studio offers 24-hour access for artists to pursue their practices whilst being invited to work on studio projects, conduct projects with the studio's clients, represent the studio abroad and at fairs, exhibit annually with the gallery, and contribute to the production of the studio publication, WAMBAM.
