What do you do with an old workingmen’s club, past its sell-by date but with loads of interesting spaces ? Turn it into a studio of course!
Jam Jar Studios is located in an ex-working mens club in the Windmill Hills area of Gateshead. We came up with the name after finding out that years ago, the Club – like many others in the area – used to show feature films for members and their families. As times were tight, you could pay for your entrance in with jam jars or bottles, which had a ha’penny or penny deposit. It just seemed a perfect name, linking the old with the new.
