About Makers’ Fair 2017

Join us in celebrating the diversity of resident makers in St Margaret’s House at our festive Makers’ Fair 2017.

Beautiful handcrafted gifts made by Edinburgh Palette tenants, with a wide selection of textiles, prints, jewellery and pottery on sale.

This year the Makers’ Fair will be set in all 3 galleries.

The Christmas Makers’ Fair at St Margaret’s House is not just a simple line-up of stalls, but is a high quality common curated show you can enjoy with friends and family.

There will also be a community café and a range of workshops for children and adults as well as a pop-up bookshop featuring storytelling and typewriters for you to try.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Makers’ Fair 2017 are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
