Out of the Blue Abbeymount Studios is our new and exciting creative space in the old Victorian school building at the top of Easter Road.

It is a multi-disciplinary facility promoting engagement and innovation in craft and design, as well as providing facilities, opportunities and development for professional designer-makers and the community.
