This is an opportunity for all artists who struggle to photograph their own work to a reasonably professional standard, kindly shared by Trina from the fifth floor.
Michael Wildman is a professional photographer who exhibits his work internationally, (he is also one of Studio 518’s models along with his partner, Carolina.) He is currently holding photography courses in St Margaret’s House.
An idea in progress….
While Trina was bending his ear about one of her current photography problems, they decided that there may be more of us who would like an hour of Michael’s time (£20.00 per hour).
He thinks an hour for basic information, lighting and camera, this would be using your own camera.
So far we have a diverse crowd , fabric designers, costume makers, oil painters, watercolourist, charcoal on paper artists, you get the idea. All of us with our own particular problem to solve. We would like to build the numbers up to a course size, anyone else interested?
The course would be held in Studio 5.18. Future dates and details to be worked on, but a show of emails would be the start.
Get in touch with either Trina – email@example.com

Starting January 2015, Ocean Terminal is embarking on a first –of- its- kind project with social enterprise Kalopsia Collective that will see the contemporary textile practitioners take up a year long Curator in Residency in the shopping centre.
The Leith-based Kalopsia will be responsible for providing 12 months of different events, exhibitions and projects based around high quality creations and textiles to increase community engagement and activity within the sprawling retail unit.
Relatively new to the building, the Leith Lapidary Club are inviting us all to join them for their specialist enamelling, gemstones and silver-casting workshops that they will be running from early 2015. Places are limited to contact as soon as possible if interested.
The programme for our Annual Fashion Show has been revealed. Divided into two parts, with an interval, this evening fusing art and fashion is one of the building’s most popular annual events. It will run as follows:
Edinburgh Judo have their Christmas Party and Fundraising Event on Saturday 29 November 2014.
They always sell raffle tickets prior to the event and we always look for prize/raffle donations. Prizes in the past have included wine, Prosecco, hampers, MOT’s, restaurant vouchers, personal training, vouchers for shops, haircuts etc.
The Scots Fiddle Festival runs from 21-23rd November and will comprise concerts, recitals, workshops, talks, ceilidhs, open stage, sessions, stalls, free events and lots more. Contributing immensely to the Scottish cultural and arts communities, this is a wonderful, warm and welcoming event.
The lovely people of Made from Scotland have reached out to us – their concept store is extending its stay due to demand:
Due to the popularity of the pop-up shop we are extending our time in Rose Street until Christmas. As you may already know, we are running a concept pop-up shop with a slight difference…
