Birthday Bash!

Birthday CakeThis time last year we were having a smashing time at our launch party, meeting many lovely crafters and chatting about all that excites us. So, this summmer, to celebrate conquering those first steps and completing a marvelous 1st year we thought we’d try it again. On this occassion we would like to invite all of you to join us on Tuesday, August 30th from 5:30 to 8pm at  Tea Tree Tea on Bread Street for our 1st Birthday Party.

Just bring along your inspiring ideas and we will ply you with birthday cake and craft supplies. Everyone should go home with their sweet tooth soothed and a little handmade gift!

See you all there!

Edinburgh Printmakers Exhibition

It is time for the Edinburgh Printmakers collective exhibition for this festival which this year is held at Coburg House in Leith.

This exhibition brings to light emerging talent from the pool of professional artists that practice at Edinburgh Printmakers alongside works by more established local artists. It is a chance to see newly published works that reflect diverse influences and offer broad appeal. With something for everyone it surely won’t fail to enthuse and excite.

Our member Sharon Whyte will be there too with her fascinating prints of female magicians and extraordinary performing animals.

Preview is on Wednesday August 18th at 6pm and the exhibition will be open 10-6 daily until September 1st.
