I have a studio to share with perhaps another oil painter. I would be wholly responsible for the lease (agreement between myself and the individual for sharing) and Edinburgh Palette would require a copy of your artist’s insurance. I mainly use the studio until 3 or 4pm weekdays as I have two secondary school age children. So you could use it solely late afternoons, evenings, weekends unless of course I had to paint to meet a deadline etc. I do not mind painting in company. The heating is included included and there is a communal kitchen also on the floor. St Margaret’s House is open 8am to 10pm 7 days a week.
Claire and I have a space available in our studio as our 3rd person is leaving.
It’s available from the 1st of Februaryfor £120 per month which includes unlimited internet and the furniture that is in there now (or if you don’t want it we can get rid of it for you). It is approximately 2.5m x 2.5m. Ideally we would like someone who spends time in the studio during the week and enjoys a cosy, homely atmosphere.
This week we’ve had two special guest visitors to St Margaret’s House – see the photos below.
On Tuesday, Kezia Dugdale, Leader of the Scottish Labour Party, visited for a tour of the building and galleries. She was very keen to learn more about what we do here and the activities taking place on her doorstep.
Today, Wednesday, we welcomed the Director of Creative Industries for Creative Scotland, Clive Gillman, who is tasked with implementing the Creative Industries Strategy 2016-2017. Clive was previously Director of Dundee Contemporary Arts and, being a keen artist himself, is interested in how St Margaret’s House has developed and the many goings on inside the building.
