Shop local this Christmas with Edinburgh Printmakers

We’re feeling full of festive cheer and opening our building for a special Christmas shopping event 11am-5pm on Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 December.

Our Shop and Gallery 2 will be selling a range of original prints by our studio members and visiting artists, all made onsite at the Castle Mills Studio. There has never been a more important time to support local artists and our building is packed full of gift inspiration including jewellery, textiles, books, stationary and homewares. You can even get creative this Christmas and pick up a printmaking kit to try at home. 

All shoppers will be entered into a prize draw to win a limited-edition print worth £360 - Blueprint for the Future by Scottish artist Kate Downie. The print was commissioned by Edinburgh Printmakers in 2015 and shows our new building at Castle Mills in the early stages of restoration. Read more about this print here: Blueprint for the Future

To help us manage numbers over the weekend, please choose your arrival time by booking a free time slot (you may arrive at any time within the half hour window). There is no limit to the length of your visit, however we do ask you to be considerate to others.

Additional information: 

Social distancing measures will be in place throughout our building with restricted numbers and sanitising stations. We ask that face-coverings are worn at all times.
