Free art workshops at the Purple Thistle
Another thing I'm involved with. It's an arts collective run entirely by youth, but people of any age are welcome to join the workshops. Have a look at what's coming up :)
Also, the studio is open every weekday if you just want to go and hang out, listen to records, use their sewing machine, darkroom, computers, bike maintenance gear, etc etc.
