Gayfield, typical of many nineteenth century developing districts in Edinburgh, was part of a thriving scene of light manufacturing and creative industry: imagine the sounds and smells of print works, cabinet-makers, timber yards and paper mills all visible on maps of the time. Today, the area is home to many artisanal and design-related businesses and individuals.

Gayfield Creative Spaces itself comprises a series of venues and workshops geared to creative collaboration located in central Edinburgh in and around a former tyre depot just off Gayfield Square.

Since acquiring the tyre depot in 2001, Gayfield founder Dr John Ennis has developed and established the building as a venue for exciting artist-maker and gallery initiatives: a number of new talents have emerged as a result of this endeavour. With high-quality, cross-disciplinary collaboration, Gayfield Creative Spaces aims to:

Explore where art and design meet health and well-being.
Highlight where creative industry enables wealth creation for local communities.
Provide a selling platform for emerging talent.
Support international connections for Scottish designers and makers.
Offer a focus for resource efficient design initiatives.
