The studio is a core component of learning and teaching and the educational experience in the creative arts. Educators regard the studio as central to the support and development of creativity, as graduates prepare for employment in industry. However, in the literature to date on the studio mode of learning and teaching, there has been little focus on the industry studio. Based on interviews with a sample of ten industry studio practitioners, this article examines their perspectives on what the industry studio is, and whether the educational studio reflects this. The article highlights the dimensions and characteristics of industry studio practice identified by these practitioners, together with their broad perspectives on what studio should be within education. Reflection includes some of the implications and challenges for education, with recommended priorities for enhancing forward-thinking educational practice.
