Caim is a quiet, peaceful, cosy, “safe space” available to hire by the hour for therapies, one-to-one meetings, group gatherings, rehearsals, meditation, yoga or any other activity you may require it for. Whether it be for a new venture, personal growth or somewhere to connect with like minded individuals, Caim is a judgement free zone that aims to enable and facilitate positive change.
Usually hired by the hour, our special introductory offer means you can hire the 2-window studio on the 6th floor for only £10 for a whole day!
Get in contact with Lubi for more information and to hire the space.
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.

We were delighted to welcome back First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, to St Margaret’s House who unveiled her official Christmas card in the Drawing Room yesterday – an original painting by John Byrne called ‘Say It With A Kiss!’.
The artwork will be auctioned next year with the proceeds going to four charities – Food Train, SCIAF, Scottish Women’s Aid and Teapot Trust. Your can read more about her visit and the charities supported on the Scottish Government website.
