Marinship Studios is located near the water’s edge in the historic town of Sausalito. We aim to reinvigorate the site known as Gate 5 where the likes of Maya Angelou, Gordon Onslow Ford, Allen Ginsberg, Jean Varda and Ruth Asawa, and others worked and lived.
Currently offering 6500 sq ft of total studio space, communal space and event rental space, Marinship Studios is dedicated to creating an active studio environment and supporting creative endeavors in the Bay Area Arts Community.
Our studios are currently full, but we are still accepting applications for future openings.
