Studio Share Available

Ready to move in as soon as possible.

Key information:

  • Second floor
  • North facing
  • Two window space
  • Belfast sink on the floor

I have a studio to share with perhaps another oil painter. I would be wholly responsible for the lease (agreement between myself and the individual for sharing) and Edinburgh Palette would require a copy of your artist’s insurance. I mainly use the studio until 3 or 4pm weekdays as I have two secondary school age children. So you could use it solely late afternoons, evenings, weekends unless of course I had to paint to meet a deadline etc. I do not mind painting in company. The heating is included included and there is a communal kitchen also on the floor. St Margaret’s House is open 8am to 10pm 7 days a week.

To arrange a viewing/more information, please contact:

EPAD Upcoming Events

Edinburgh Performing Arts Development (EPAD) is a capacity building project for Edinburgh’s independent performing artists and producers that provides support by identifying and promoting  opportunities to connect people’s needs with existing provision, and plugging gaps. There are opportunities for independent artists and companies working in the performing arts sector to access short-term advisory sessions, longer-term mentoring, targeted interventions and bespoke training. We initiate relationships that enable the city’s more experienced performing arts producers and practitioners to support those with less experience or working independently and with access to fewer resources.

Here is the round-up of events over the next couple of months.
