Marble Printing

With Mischke Lingerie

You will then learn how to turn your marble fabric into a fabric corsage or flower crown to show off your new skill!

Email for the July 22nd this will be 12noon-4pm and everyone will make a corsage or flower crown from their marbled fabric. All materials included cost £40, capped at 8 participants.

Edinburgh Tool Library in Porty!

The Edinburgh Tool Library (ETL) works exactly like a library, but with tools instead of books.  From June 26th, every Monday, between 4.30pm and 7pm they will be in Portobello Library. To help share their goodness, we are holding an outside furniture building day at Tribe Porty with Earthy Foods and ETL on the 12 August from 10-4pm. We are aiming to build a picnic table and some planters together from upcycled wood. Come and learn, have fun and get stuck in. Everyone welcome, let us know you are coming here.

Creative Writing

June has brought us more incredibly talented human beings, including two James' and a Bond! We welcome-

James Carver- James is an enthusiastic consultant and researcher who enjoys a wide breadth of interests and challenges. James has been a bond fund manager for fifteen years and enjoys talking and researching about all things related to the macro economy, particularly central bank policies, asset prices and income inequality. He is passionate about green spaces and the things that live in them, and wants us humans to respect them more. He is also a keen “Timebanker”, which has helped provide him with plenty of opportunities to connect with new people and improve local green spaces.

James Nikitine- works in Marine Conservation & Communications, currently working for IUCN as a freelance consultant producing and directing a 26-minute documentary about high seas governance. The film also tells the story of an oceanographic expedition to a shallow water high seas seamount (20m) we did in April/May 2017 in the South West Indian Ocean during a 26-day cruise, financed by the French Environment Fund, in partnership with the Natural History Museum of Paris and France's R&D Institute. We did a complete survey, diving and exploring the water column around the undersea mountain. My tasks involve writing, underwater filming, stakeholder engagement, marine policy and marine scientific expertise, supervising the pre-production, production and post-production processes. The film will Premiere at the International Marine Protected Area Congress in Chile in September 2017.
More information about the expedition here:

Stacey Bell is singer and logistic queen for wedding and function band Corra. Stacy is involved in various aspects of our client’s wedding plans, helping brides and groom’s get the exact entertainment they want for their wedding. Stacey is not only an amazing performer, she loves her 'job' and enjoys the fact no two weddings are ever the same. She also loves learning new songs, performing and making musical moments with her bandmates. If Stacey wasn’t based in beautiful Porty for wonderful work days working along side her best mate,  she would probably scoot off to the Austrian slopes to ski all day long. You can find more about Stacey and Jayne here.

Anna Liebmann was drawn to basketmaking whilst her children were tiny and she lived and worked at a small land-focussed housing co-operative set in 50 acres of farmland in Lanarkshire.  A want for beautiful toy baskets coupled with the unsuitability of metal work (her previous passion) around toddlers and an abundance of natural materials on the land led her to thinking that making her own baskets would be a good idea.
Anna also enjoys working on commissions, repair work, garden projects and larger scale installations and has completed a willow boat bird hide for children in Fife, woven willow tipis and other installations for the Eden Festival in Dumfries and Galloway, a fire sculpture for New Year's Day 2016 at the Kelpies in Falkirk, and sculptures on the beach in Portobello.




BY Seth Godin

This is an urgent call to do the work we're hiding from, a manifesto about living with things that might not work and embracing tension when doing your art.

A full-color book in the form of a magazine, without ads, but with heart and soul and speed.

Seth hopes you'll consider buying multiple copies at the discounted price to share with friends, co-workers and people on your team. It’s the shared copies that make this project work, and it’s the shared copies that will help create the change you seek in the people around you. See more here.



By Sendhil Mullainathan and Eldar Shafir

Why can we never seem to keep on top of our workload, social diary or chores? Why does poverty persist around the world? Why do successful people do things at the last minute in a sudden rush of energy? 

We've all struggled with packing a suitcase with too many items and not enough time to do it. In Scarcity, two intellectual adventurers show us that this simple idea explains the most fundamental problems in all walks of life. Using the new science of scarcity, they explain why obesity is rampant; why people find it difficult to sleep when most sleep deprived; and why the lonely find it so hard to make friends. Scarcity will change the way you think about both the little everyday tasks and the big issues of global urgency.
