A Collective of Artists & Makers

The Leith Collective is a retail unit in Ocean Terminal Shopping Centre supporting artists and makers to sell their work in a supportive and co-operative environment.

At present we are a collective of 90+ artists and makers from all over Scotland all working together to promote each other, sustainability and our local communities.

A Unique Retail Space

We are recognised locally for being a unique selling space due to both our specific model and how we present and promote the space.

The Leith Collective’s model is designed to enable all artists the opportunity to sell their work, specifically supporting artists and makers new to the retail environment by offering a store front to support members’ online sales.

With fantastic support from Ocean Terminal we are able to provide a space that offers a huge footfall from the centre including Royal Yacht Britannia.

Reuse, Recycle, Reclaim, Resell

We have an over-riding theme of re-use, recycle, re-claim and re-sell. We actively seek artists and makers that are recycling items and converting unwanted items heading for landfill into unique, one-off pieces. 

Workshops

The Leith Collective offer regular workshops for the local community in creating and promoting our theme of re-use, recycle, re-claim and re-sell, using the Collective members skills in creating from re-used items. 

Supporting Individuals & Community

We actively support individuals with Mental Health issues and promote mental health generally. We also collaborate with local charities, offering clothes swops/donations, winter coat donations and food bank donations.

We are a Community Interest Company  and are able to support our charity partners as well as providing free workshops. Our charity of the year is the Wave Project offering surf therapy and beach school projects (www.WaveProject.co.uk). We also work alongside our sister charity The Image Collective offering free and affordable exhibition opportunities to any artist (www.theimagecollective.co.uk). 

From slow beginnings comes great rewards. As a Collective we are ever expanding and with huge thanks to our members commitment to promoting and working in the shop we can only grow.
