1a Inverness Place

madeinroath have been resident at 1a Inverness Place – an empty shop just off Albany Road – since March 2018. This is the first time that madeinroath have had ‘official’ premises, and it has enabled us to consider new ways of working, and to offer artists the space to develop ideas within the context of a lively, vibrant and diverse community. 

Our Residencies​

Through our artist in residence programme, 1a has been transformed into a community hub, with a variety of uses: a museum, an indigo dying/textile studio, a tea room, a portrait studio, a sound recording booth and a workshop space.

Latest Residency:
Catherine Angle

We’re delighted to introduce our latest artist in residence at 1a: Catherine Angle.

July 20, 1969 10:56 pm.
