Roost Project

Roost is a design & maker project based originally in Muirhouse by resident artist Lindsay Perth. Roost’s aim is to create a ‘makerspace’ for people to share their skills and knowledge and to design, create and make for North Edinburgh communities.

At the end of 2016, in Muirhouse Shopping Centre, 200 plain birdhouses made from OSB bling-ed and ‘pimped’ into 200 unique artworks by the local community, NHS staff, Scottish-based artists. The 200 birdhouses were brought together for a weeks interactive light installation. In 2017 the birdhouses were displayed at Custom Lane, Leith in the run up to the epic Roost Auction which raised over £1500 for maker groups based at North Edinburgh Arts.
