Alma Yard Open Studios 2022

To celebrate Alma Yard officially opening its doors to the public, as well as the opening of Heyl Bakery, Eat Work Art are hosting its first Open Studios in Devon. Expect exclusive access to artist studios, workshops, music, food & drink to get a feel for the Alma Yard lifestyle.

For those looking for a studio or want to find out more about the Alma Yard’s history, tours will be available of areas under development.

*Please note that all workshops have limited capacity and ticket holders will have priority.*


Alma Yard is conveniently located by Sutton Harbour, a short walk from the city centre, and is a car-free site that promotes access by bicycle, public transport, or on foot.

The nearest carparks are Harbour Car Park on Lockyer’s Quay and the Barbican Leisure Centre. Suitable drop off and pick up points include outside Totem Timber on St John’s Road (not not be mistaken with St John’s Bridge Road) or by Bretonside/Sutton Harbour.


A revitalised mid-19th century rope factory, Alma Yard is set to become home to a community of creatives drawn to Plymouth’s burgeoning arts scene and relaxed pace of life.

Located on an iconic coastal rise, the site’s period features such as an original car lift are illuminated by streams of natural light and lofty spaces. These unique facets enrich the studios, public and workspaces, becoming the backdrop to this new and inspiring Eat Work Art location.

Just a short walk from Plymouth’s city centre, Alma Yard is a thriving hub of creativity. The perfect environment to create, collaborate, and innovate.
