My husband has just had his first solo exhibition here .... Amazing place ! Next week they have an open weekend for the artists who have studios inside. We will definitely go and hopefully buy some presents for Christmas

“If you want GOOD mementos go here or contact their artists”

I live fairly nearby so I wander past from time to time. I have visited them during 'open days' when all the workshops have been open to the public. It's a warren with 50 or more artists spread over three floors.It's fascinating.

Each artist has a room used as a workshop. Paintings, litho, wood, silver, gold, glass, plastic, pottery ... pretty much anything you can imagine an artist or artisan producing.

They have a downstairs gallery where they host exhibitions. They also do courses.

This place is well worth a trip. It's located on Coburg street, which is over the bridge at the South end of The Shore, and quite near the Roseleaf pub.

There are two other arty places very nearby:

Leith Gallery: on the Shore. This is more your traditional Art Gallery. https://the-leith-gallery.co.uk/

Ritchie Collins Art Gallery; was called Waterside Arts: gallery and art shop belonging to Ritchie Collins. Art, souvenirs, artists materials. http://www.ritchiecollinsgallery.co.uk/

The three make Leith worth exploring as a place for good quality tourist souvenirs. Why buy foreign-made stuff from tartan tourist shops when you can pick up items of artistice value instead? Especially if you can combine it with a nice lunch (Water of Leith Bistro, King's Wark) or drink (Roseleaf, Kings Wark) or coffee (Truva)
