The premises are rented by AHA Eiendom AS, and the joint workshop is organized as a Cooperative with a general manager and board.

Gregus Kunstnerverksteder

Adresse: Frostaveien 2c

Gregus Kunstnerverksteder is a studio collective for 11 artists within arts and crafts and fine arts.

In 1988, a group of artists, mainly in the textile art field, started a studio collective in the old ‘housewife school’ building on Dronningens gate in collaboration with Trondheim municipality. In 1998, the artists moved from the centre of town to the old margarine factory on Gregus gate in Lademoen, and took the name Gregus Kunstnerverksteder. In August 2022 the collective moved to temporary facilities in Frostaveien 2. 

While they are waiting for permanent studios the artists would like to welcome curious audiences to have a look at a studio collective in limbo during Trondheim Open!

Independent studios

A fair part of the artists in Trondheim and Trøndelag work in independent studios. These are studios that are not a part of a bigger collective, and you’ll find them for example in the artists home, an old warehouse or a custom made workshop. There are many intriguing studios around Trøndelag and this Saturday you’ll be able to discover both known and unknown spaces and figure out if there are any artist studios in your neighborhood.
