September 29th 1918 marked the first performance of the Planets, a suite in seven movements composed by Gustav Holst. Each movement took the name of a planet and reflected musically its astrological or mythological ‘character’. This exhibition could be seen as a visual equivalent; a planet ‘quartet’ where the associations are, in some exhibits obvious, in others less clear.
In musical terms there are three motif’s:
Mars; Bringer of conflict
Venus: Bringer of peace and tranquility
Mercury; A Messenger controlled by the Gods but also a disruptive Trickster. All are embraced by the main theme, Uranus the Mystic and searcher of the Truth Beneath the Surface, a far bigger planet than the other three.
11:00 am - 5:00 pm

Small postcard exhibition October 2021
This is a unique exhibition of over 100 small postcards on display in Edinburgh Palette, POP UP Gallery.
At this challenging time we at Space Artworks were very keen to reconnect with our artists and communities. The small postcard project came about to support and involve those who have been living in isolation in order to encourage creative expression and participation, with the ultimate aim of staging a group exhibition of artworks, which is now possible and open to all.
10:30 am - 4:00 pm
If you are new to fused glass, but would like to design and make few pieces of your own bespoke jewellery, then this class is for you. You don’t need any prior skills or knowledge, just imagination and creativity. We will use colorful glass, which incorporates metals and is perfect for making sparkling jewellery, and both microwave and larger glass kilns.
In this workshop you will learn:
• the basics of fusing glass
• how to cut and layer glass in preparation for fusing
• how to fuse glass in a kiln
• post-fusing processing, such as grinding and polishing
• how to attach jewellery findings to glass
At the end of the workshop you should be able to take home a finished pendant (or two) and a pair of earrings (or two) of your own design. You are welcome to bring your own ideas or follow a pre-designed project. The skills that you will learn will help you start making glass jewellery at home or in a studio setting. Tools, and materials will be provided, but please bring an apron with you.
The class is limited to two people.
