What a fun way to end the year. The makers’ fair was a roaring success and greatly enjoyed by makers, helpers and visitors. You can see some photos of the set up below.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who made the exhibitions and events programme possible this year, as well as our residents for making Edinburgh Palette such a lively, diverse and welcoming community at St Margarets House.
We are looking forward to next year as we will be hosting more exciting creative community gatherings, workshops and events.
From all of us at Edinburgh Palette, we wish you a very Merry Christmas and an inspiring and peaceful New Year.
Eddie ‘the Machete’ McVitie is calling for all Tenant’s interested in a game of 5-a-side football to get yourself down to Powerleague, Portobello once a week for a friendly game or two. We would like to get an idea of numbers and who might be available to play before making a block booking, so please contact email@example.com if the idea of dusting off your old boots is appealing to you!
