The Bridge Pottery Collective (BPC) was established in 2011 as a home for pottery equipment, including a lustre kiln that was bequeathed by Margery Clinton [1932-2004] to her friend, and founding member of the collective, Alison Robinson. In 2011, the BPC opened in St Margaret’s House.

Master Trainer Mia Munroe is visiting Edinburgh from the US this year and it is a wonderful opportunity for anyone wishing to try out this unique method of movement. After a ten year career in classical ballet, Mia’s subsequent training as a Gyrokinesis instructor came directly from studying with the founder, Juliu Horvath. It’s a free class as it’s the final assessment for teacher training and the tutor would love some volunteer students to work with.
The Gyrokinesis method is a yoga-based full body workout designed to exercise the entire spine while restoring strength and fluidity to muscles and joints. Its rotational exercises build core and lean muscle strength while nourishing the body using rhythm and breath.
10:00 am - 6:00 pm
In Lynn Ahrens’ work, themes extracted from the origins of life through childhood, art and imagination recur and take new forms. Lifeworld is a selection of figurative paintings and paperworks exploring these human themes.
The situations in which Ahrens posits the figures determine the form they take, as much as they themselves inform the scenes around them. The arising interaction between subject and surroundings gives shape and colour to the metaphors Ahrens’ work explores.
Opens Friday 7th November from 6.30pm.
The exhibition runs until Sunday 23rd November.
10am – 6pm daily.
Free admission. All are welcome.

Spaces we live in and spaces we visit have an impact on our mood and well-being. They are especially important when we are not well. Some public spaces, for example Maggie’s Support Centres, Homoeopathic Hospital in Glasgow and Kettle’s Yard in Cambridge, make us feel good even though we may have different tastes and ideas about art and design.
6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
