The Thomas Project is a multi-artist studio space located at the former Thomas Coke Works on property owned by Wade Sand & Gravel. The site entrance is located at 710 Florida Avenue in the Thomas neighborhood.

The project began in 1996 as an outreach by Robin and Carolyn Wade to support working artists in Birmingham. Tim Poe was the first artist invited, and he began working from the plant's former coal testing lab. Visiting artists, such as Zachary Coffin, have also used the space to complete projects.

Sculptor Brad Morton moved his foundry equipment to the Thomas Project in 2020.
