ABOUT SECOND HOME STUDIO + CAFE

SECOND HOME STUDIO + CAFE ARE A NOT-FOR-PROFIT ORGANISATION WHICH FOCUSES ON MAKING ART MORE ACCESSIBLE. BEING A COMMUNITY INTEREST COMPANY MEANS WE EXSIST FOR THE SOLE BENEFIT OF OUR LOCAL COMMUNITY, NOT FOR THE FINANCIAL BENEFIT OF OUR DIRECTORS OR SHAREHOLDERS. 

WE'LL SOON BE IN OUR NEW PREMISES (39 HUNTLY STREET) WHERE WE'LL BE ABLE TO OFFER YOU DELICIOUS COFFEE AND LUNCHES AS WELL AS ART MATERIALS TO USE ON SITE. MORE ON THIS VERY SOON!

WITH OUR NEW PREMISES AND THE COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS EASING (HOPEFULLY) WE AIM TO BRING YOU ART CLASSES THAT ARE AS AFFORDABLE AS POSSIBLE, WHILE ENSURING THAT OUR LOCAL CREATIVE TUTORS GET PAID FAIRLY. BY HOSTING ART CLASSES AT AFFORDABLE RATES, WE HOPE TO INCREASE THE ACCESSIBILITY OF THE ART WORLD AND ENSURE THAT EVERYONE HAS AN OPPORTUNITY TO EXPLORE THEIR CREATIVITY.

HELLO, I'M KIRSTY, THE DIRECTOR OF SECOND HOME. YOU'LL QUITE OFTEN HEAR ME REFERRING TO THE BUSINESS AS "WE", BUT IT'S ACTUALLY JUST ME.

I STARTED SECOND HOME STUDIO SO THAT YOU CAN BE YOUR BEST, MOST CREATIVE SELF. 

I HAVE A BA IN FASHION COMMUNICATION FROM HERIOT WATT UNIVERSITY AND I'M AN ILLUSTRATOR. WHEN I'M NOT WORKING, I ENJOY TAKING PHOTOS ON 35MM, EATING FOOD COOKED BY SOMEONE ELSE, AND WALKING IN FORESTS, UP BIG HILLS, OR AT THE BEACH.
