Studio Share

I am looking to share my studio from now until the end of the year. It is a three window studio, lots of natural light and uncluttered.

I am a musician and mainly use the studio for teaching and practising. Sharing with another musician, or similarly small scale music making would work well, but I’d be happy to talk to other artists who need a space to work in for a time too. I am interested in drawing, photography and video work as well, so get in touch if you are interested to have a look at the space.

Rent would be £115 a month, including all of the perks of being in the Palette – please contact me at kungflute@gmail.com to find out more.

Thanks!

Room for Music Teacher

Hive mind required! I’m wondering if anyone has a space or knows of a place, that could be let on a Friday for a small day fee in Willowbrae/Northfield/Portobello area. It may be a community space or it might be someone’s outdoor room – open to all ideas

The room would be used by a piano/harp teacher and primary students would be visiting for their 1 to 1 classes. If there is space for storage of a harp and electronic piano this would be a bonus but it can probably be worked around (or perhaps a piano is already there).

Please contact Phil at psdphotography@gmail.com if you know of anywhere.
