Link Living Bake Sale

On Friday the 6th of December Link Living are hosting a bake sale at their 3rd floor office (next to the library) in St Margaret’s House between 3pm and 5pm.

All goods will be baked and served by their volunteers who are vulnerable young people between the ages of 16-25 who used to or still engage with support at LinkLiving, and who now also help us with our courses, peer education and mentoring in schools and other events.

All of the money raised will be used to pay for training, events and other things that will help the personal development of their young people.

Pop along for some tasty afternoon treats!

Christmas Makers’ Market Pop-Up Exhibition

5th December – drop off works to the gallery

6th – setup (Marcin will curate and hang all the artworks)

7th – the market and exhibition open to audience from 11am until 5pm

8th – all works need to be collected

Each artist will have to prepare their own labels with name, title, medium and price. Each artist can bring 2-3 pieces, however Marcin can’t guarantee that all of them will be showcased (depending on how much space will be available). The exhibition is a good opportunity for artists to promote their art so I would encourage everyone to have business cards next to their works with contact details. In case of any purchase artists will have to deal directly with the customer.  It’s a good opportunity to talk to potential clients. We don’t take any percentage from sales and there’s no fees for participation. The exhibition is for the tenants only. For any questions artists should contact Marcin via email or pop in to the office.

We require volunteers to help with the invigilation of both galleries, please get in touch if this is something you would be interested in.

Rural Studio Cabin

A rare opportunity to own, or rent long term, an off grid hut/cabin for use as a studio/retreat space in the countryside.

Scottish Planning policy was extended in 2016 to allow the construction of small off grid timber huts as leisure accommodation in the countryside. The Planning Definition required to qualify as a Hut is:
“A simple building used intermittently as recreational accommodation (ie not a principal residence); having an internal floor area of no more than 30m2; constructed from low impact materials; generally not connected to mains water, electricity or sewerage; and built in such a way that it is removable with little or no trace at the end of its life. Huts may be built singly or in groups”.
