Opp: Studio Space - Half Share

I am a glass artist based at Edinburgh Palette looking for another artist to share with. I have a north facing three window studio ( 5 x 5 mt approx) to share between us two. My studio is on the sixth floor with great views over the sea and Fife and a beautiful and clean northern light. All utilities bills included. Ideal for a maker (jeweller, painter, sculptor, potter or another glass artist), as my studio occasionally might be a bit noisy (grinder, hammering) and dusty. It’s not appropriate for a computer or textile artist. I do work at the studio full time Monday to Friday and would like to find a studio mate more focused on evenings and weekends, but I am open to almost anything! If you are interested please contact me via: Email: moladavid@gmail.com Phone: 07783870658
