North Edinburgh Arts: Community Shed and Pantry
43 Pennywell Road, Edinburgh, EH4 4HA
Phone: 0131 315 2151
The North Edinburgh Arts Community Shed and Pantry are located in the old Co-Op building at 43 Pennywell Road.
The building is due for demolition at some point in the near future, as part of the ongoing regeneration of Muirhouse, when both the Pantry and the Community Shed will need to find new home.
The Community Shed has been here since August 2018 and the Pantry since October 2020.
The Community Shed’s mission statement is as follows:
The Shed is a welcoming, safe space where people living in North Edinburgh can come to make or mend stuff using recycled wood. We aim to be a fun space where our members can meet new people, learn new skills, and feel supported to realize their creative ambitions. We believe that when we work together we can achieve almost anything. Our limitation is our imagination.
The Pennywell Pantry is a community space which offers members to do a top up shop. On a weekly basis, members of the pantry can purchase food with a collective value of £25 for £3.50. The Pantry is stocked with food from various sources, including Fareshare membership and donations. We also source fresh fruit and vegetables for members.
We are not open for in-person visits this Doors Open Days, but we do hope you will enjoy a brief virtual visit to our building below.
