Creative Colonies, 11th November 2012

With so many artistic and creative residents in the Stockbridge Colonies, we are launching a new event to showcase their work and to give us all an opportunity to buy just in time for Christmas!  The event is called Creative Colonies (as 2012 is the year of Creative Scotland!) and will take place from 2-5pm on Sunday, 11th November.
