The coffee machine takes Nespresso Pods. If more than 10 are required then Hirer must supply their own.

Studio bins must be emptied into the council or recycling bins located out the back in the carpark.


The studio must be left exactly as it is found. Should a cleaner be required to reset the studio as a result of the hire, the full cost of this will be billed to the Hirer.

The Hirer accepts full responsibility for any damages arising from the Hirer’s use of Bolt Studioz premises, including but not limited to, personal injury and equipment damage.

The Hirer will be liable for any loss, breakage or damage caused to the studio’s equipment, fixtures, fittings and will be charged the full replacement cost of these items.

Leoni Bolt and Bolt Studioz do not accept any liability for any loss or damage to the equipment or personal effects of the Hirer or the Hirer’s associates.
