I can hardly contain my excitement (and stress), its only 5 days until Coburg House Open Studios! As you may know, I am the new gallery manager at Coburg House, an artist studios complex in Leith, Edinburgh, so this year I am helping to organise the big Christmas open studios event!

You are invited to Coburg House Open Studios Christmas 2017! Our residents, which include painters, illustrators, printmakers, jewellers, weavers, ceramicists and photographers – invite the public into their private art studios. Open Studios also provide an exclusive opportunity to buy or commission directly from our artisans; the perfect opportunity to shop for that unique Christmas gift!

Entry to the event is free, with free refreshments and live music entertainment also on offer on the opening night, and throughout the weekend there will be an in-house pop-up coffee shop so you can take a break in between our 4 floors of craft.

We are kindly sponsored this year by Innis & Gunn, so be sure to come along to the preview on Friday 1st December for some delicious Scottish craft beer!

The opening times are as follows:

Friday 1st December 6-9pm (opening night)
Saturday 2nd-Sunday 3rd December 11am-5pm

RSVP here:

We can’t wait to see you there!
