As spaces may be in use, please allow at least a week's notice for a tour.
Ongoing renters are given access to shared Google calendars to book their space, as well as entry keys/codes. An event or rental contract may be required.
Please include a few details about your work & professional background. How do you hope to use the WCHA?

Here you’ll find our standard Rental Rates for studios and offices (based on type of rental, duration, and time of use). Please also review our Rental Policies (including payment & cancellation for use ot spaces).

It is also possible to reserve multiple spaces at WCHA for larger workshops, groups, and training events. These events have a special reservation process, rates, payment schedules, and cancellation policies. Please refer to Renting Spaces for Events for details.
