The Number Shop

The Number Shop - Studios and Gallery is an independent artist-run project in the centre of Edinburgh, which provides affordable studio spaces for 10 practitioners as well as a flexible use exhibition space.

A former adult education centre of the same name, The Number Shop, since its renovation and opening in Spring 2014 has hosted a diverse range of exhibitions, events and workshops organised by resident and visiting artists. Its inaugural exhibition was the group show PRIMO by Edinburgh College of Art - Final Year Sculpture Department 2014.

TNS hosts a varied programme in its dedicated Project Space as well as holding larger scale shows and events throughout the studios, notably being host venues to both the Edinburgh International Science Festival and Edinburgh Art Festival in 2015.
