Scottish Historic Buildings Trust is a conservation charity which is working on a project to restore Custom House on Commercial Street in Leith, which has been closed to the public for over 30 years. They have personally invited artists holding studio here to exhibit work there for an upcoming event.
The building is usable and in the interim we have been running a series of open days to make people aware of the spaces currently available to hire or indeed lease. As part of Edinburgh’s Doors Open initiative this weekend the building will be open on Sunday between 10am and 4pm on the 27th. There are a number of spaces that artists could exhibit their work if it was of any interest and we would take a small commission of any works sold. These monies would then go into the restoration fund for the building or other buildings in Edinburgh. We hope to welcome somewhere between 1500 and 2000 people.
I appreciate it is short notice but should anyone be interested they would need to get in contact with myself by midday on Thursday.
