information DESCRIPTION

Edinburgh Palette is an Edinburgh-based arts charity which comprises artists studios, galleries and specialist workshops.

In August 2008 Edinburgh Palette successfully negotiated for several floors of St Margaret’s House – a vacant, ex-office building. By Spring 2010 Edinburgh Palette had leased all the remaining floors of St Margaret’s House and filled all 200 studios with budding artists, crafters and community organisations.

Today Edinburgh Palette remains 100% occupied with a waiting list for space. It also houses community arts spaces, a theatre, rehearsal spaces, a cinema room, a printmaking studio, a ceramics studio & kilns, a recording studio, a martial arts dojo, a library, a swap shop, meeting rooms and more than 11,000 ft²­ of gallery space.

Over 1,000 artists and community members visit Edinburgh Palette every week.

Developing strong relationships with key tenants and partners provides a degree of certainty and stability as well as raising the profile and kudos of Edinburgh Palette. By establishing a cross section of successful key tenants with different areas of expertise Edinburgh Palette ensures it meets its vision of being a ‘melting pot’ where arts, crafts and community all meet.

St Margaret’s House now has an array of organisations and collectives who have all benefited from the support and belief of Edinburgh Palette towards their potential and ambition.

These include the following:

- The Bridge Pottery Collective
- Care for carers
- Edinburgh Judo Club
- Edinburgh School of Music
- Leith Lapidary Club
- Feniks. Counselling, Personal Development and Support Services
- Upward Mobility
- Yoga Now Studio
