A cluster of artists and makers holding studios in St Margaret’s House will be selling their work in a special, two-day fair, at the beginning of December (9th-10th).


Beautiful handcrafted gifts made by Edinburgh Palette tenants, with a wide selection of textiles, paintings, jewellery, prints, cards and ceramics on sale.


There is a Bank of Scotland with a cash machine just opposite the building on London Road.

This year the Makers’ Fair will be set in all 3 galleries:

  • Gallery 1 – Ceramics / Stone & Sculpture / Jewellery…
  • Gallery 2 – Textiles / Feltmaking / Quilt…
  • Gallery 3 – Paper work / Cards / Calendars…

The Christmas makers’ fair at St Margaret’s House is not just a simple line-up of stalls, but is a high quality common curated show you can enjoy with friends and family. We look forward to seeing you there.


Link Up Women’s Support Centre are delighted to offer their lovely creche facilities to browsers and shoppers at the Makers’ Fair this Christmas on both Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th December.
You can leave your 2-8 year olds with us and shop in peace for a £5 suggested donation to cover the running costs of the crèche. The crèche will be running each day between 12pm and 2pm. Spaces will be available subject to capacity on the day.


Help us spread the word. Share the word with your friends, your family and everyone else.
