Hope this finds you all well, and enjoying the first signs of spring (at last!) …

On Wednesday 11 April we’re looking forward to welcoming Hannah Rye, Education Officer with Edinburgh Printmakers. She’ll be showing us some beautiful slides with images by artist-photgrapher Norman MacBeath of the old Castle Silk Mills/Fountain Brewery HQ, which is now being refurbished as the future home of Edinburgh Printmakers, housing studios, galleries, and an amazing new arts hub. We’ll hear about progress on developments with the building work and about how the Shed can get involved in community arts over the coming months and years. Can’t wait!!

Hope to see you soon Anna


THE CANAL SHED CELEBRATED ITS FIRST BIRTHDAY ON WEDNESDAY 7 FEBRUARY. Of course there was a special cake to celebrate this. WE LOOK FORWARD TO LOTS OF NEW AND EXCITING ACTIVITIES FOR THE SECOND YEAR. Upcycling of broken wooden chairs is just one new thing available to join in with. Come and give us a try.
