how to turn the world by hand...

There's an exciting opportunity coming up for you arty-crafty-maker-shaker's out there so keep reading...

'New shop and café take over Collective - this hiatus is out of our control and will be in place for 6 weeks from April 16 - May 29. Apologies for the inconvenience.'

Collective's next exhibition, an off-site DIY Fountain by Rania Ho launches in The Scottish Book Trust Garden tonight.

Meanwhile, the gallery on Cockburn Street is being turned into a café and shop, (but not just any café and shop).

Mobile Bazaar, a travelling Turkish Bazaar selling a range of goods exported from China, will be setting up shop in the gallery spaces. Whilst in the reception area the Feral Trade Café, will be trading food and drink sourced through a range of social networks, with documentation by the artist Kate Rich. (Have a look at to see the shipments en route to Collective now...)

On Sundays there will be a series of themed markets at Cockburn Street, which Collective are looking for makers to get involved with. The markets are FREE to take part in, all that you are asked to do is supply an A1 poster advertising your wares a week in advance. The dates are...

Sunday 17 April - Bake off 
Sunday 24 April - Craft 
Sunday 1 May - Artist's Multiples 
Sunday 8 May - Illustration 
Sunday 15 May - Publications 
Sunday 22 May -  Anything goes
