Messums Studios is the educational branch of Messums West.

The Tisbury based pioneering multi-purpose gallery and Art Centre established Messums Studios in Chilmark in July 2021 as a teaching art studio. Its aim was to support life-long creative learning with the emphasis on the individual’s development of creative language through the tuition of making skills and material knowledge. Underpinned by the ambitious and eye-opening programme of art exhibitions, events and academic symposia, Messums Studios helps to foster a community of creatives of all ages, abilities, and levels of expertise.

Clay, pottery and ceramics was and remains the topic of primary focus. However, now in our third year we have expanded into drawing and painting and we seek to explore and grow our creative learning offer to other media and methods such as print and woodwork.
