My friend (and, I might add amazing jeweller) Lisa Arnott has just opened Silverhub Studios, a new resource for aspiring and established jewellery designers in Edinburgh. Based on Leith Walk there are 10 permanent benches and 6 open access benches available to rent plus a whole host of equipment available to use including pegs, saws, files, pliers, doming punches and blocks, hammers, tumbler, barrel polisher, ultrasound cleaner, rolling mill, pillar drill, pendant drill, enamelling kiln and more.....PLUS books and magazines for reference. I love the ethos of the open plan skill sharing and this would be such an amazing place to work in....
It's such a beautiful, central, amazing space and I'm so proud of Lisa for realising her dream - so jewellers - go forth and occupy!
