A Creative Collective //We are a group of freelancers who like flexibility in our working life. We work alone and so we thrive community - which is why TC exists! We started as a group of film-makers and animators back in 2010. We pull resources when the clients or jobs call for it, but we also work on our own projects. We work under one roof and we welcome the chance to collaborate. Finding a productive and quiet place to work can be tricky, so consider TC your home from home with everything you need. We’re always evolving and trying to improve so that we keep your work space fresh, accessible and comfortable. If you need a quiet place to work, focus, vent, sleep, drink coffee, think, moan about deadlines, share feedback with others or of course to assemble around a poker table or prop up a bar after a long week, Toad’s Caravan could be for you.
Day Pass //Nab yourself a day pass for 20/day and use any available space, plus complimentary Dear Green Coffee & Pukka Tea. We throw in the odd apple on occasion...don't say we're not good to you
Monthly //Our full time membership is 150/month for access Mon-Fri, 9-6pm. Apply for a space using the form below and we hope to meet you soon!
Face To Face //Our space is home to 15-20 freelancers. We like to meet new members face to face first and ensure that the space is what they're looking for. We’re an independent, family-run company and the space itself is not profit-making. Any excess we receive from members goes towards improving the space. Bear this in mind when you come to look around, thanks y'all!
Application //Please fill in the form below and we'll be in touch to arrange for a time to meet for a quick coffee and chat.
How do I get involved? //If you’re keen to work here at TC, please fill in the application form further down the page and we’ll get back to you to arrange to meet up and show you around. If you’re looking to commission some work, please drop us an email.
How Do I Pay? //All payments are made online via our booking system. Once you’re registered we will send you a link to complete a mandate which creates a Direct Debit, taking payment at the beginning of each month. If you are using day passes, you’ll be charged pro-rata.
Do I need to be creative? //Absolutely not! But you gotta be nice - we like nice people
Do I need to give notice? //Yes please. If you are a member here, we request 1 month's notice in advance if you plan to leave. We can talk to you about one-off bookings for set periods of time too, just let us know before you sign up if this is the case.
What Do I Get? //For 150/month you get access to our home-from-home office-come-studio space Monday-Friday, 9-6pm. We have kitchen facilities, fast internet, a land-line your clients can call in on, a phone booth, basement coworking, a quiet room for calls, friendly onsite mutt (there is some barking, sorry), exposure via our website, social events, regular in-house poker game and some good chat. Sometimes.
Will There Always Be Space For Me? //We are keeping our rates low so that we can be as accessible as possible for as many people as possible. With that comes a some compromise - sometimes you may not be able to sit in your favourite spot! There are always more available work spaces than members, so don't panic.
Originating from Japan, the word “kokedama” translates as “moss ball”. The art form of kokedama, deriving from Bonsai, involves carefully removing the root system from a living plant’s container, before surrounding it in a special soil mix and wrapping securely with moss and twine. The result is a living sculptural object that can be hung up or placed in a shallow dish – perfect as a gift or for decorating your home. We hope you enjoy these beautiful pieces by Becky Rawlinson of Little Wild Things as much as we do! Visit our online shop or visit Mr Toad’s window display to order and have your kokedama shipped, direct from the street!
