Equipment Hire

We have a range of equipment that is available for you to use by prior arrangement at the StraightCurves studios.

All equipment hire is subject to available studio space and pre booking an appointment - please Contact Us to book. The first hour must paid for in advance when booking; additional hours can be paid on the day.

Unfortunately our insurance doesn't allow for this equipment to be used outside of our building, so if you are hiring the equipment you must use it at on our premises.

StraightCurves Creative Club members receive 25% off all of these prices at all times.
