Coburg House Open Studios

Edinburgh has so much going on at this time of year it’s hard to know where to start! This weekend – 6th & 7th December – the Coburg House Studios have their open weekend.

This is a collection of artists, jewellers, textile designers, potters, sculptors, fashion designers and every other creative pursuit you can imagine who work in this literal honeycomb of studios on Coburg Street in Leith.

It is perfect timing for the dreaded Christmas shopping. Give a few hours over to meandering round as there is floor after floor of studios to explore and people to chat to.

If you run out of steam you can nip round to the rather fabulous Mimis Bakehouse where you can expect big squishy cakes and excellent coffee to fill you up before heading back for more perusing.

See how many names you can tick off your Christmas Pressie list!
