madeinroath is taking some time out to consider how we can best support our community over the upcoming weeks and months. We are however still at the end of an email – – if you have something you’d like to talk to us about. We will continue to share useful information and resources as and when we can.

Big love and stay safe!

For 2020 we will continue to host a series of artist residencies in our shop space – 1a Inverness – as well as developing the new studio group, space and community darkroom at 11-13 Braeval Street.
Please do get in touch if you would like to talk to us – we’re all ears at

1a Inverness Place

madeinroath have been resident at 1a Inverness Place – an empty shop just off Albany Road – since March 2018. This is the first time that madeinroath have had ‘official’ premises, and it has enabled us to consider new ways of working, and to offer artists the space to develop ideas within the context of a lively, vibrant and diverse community. 

1a Artists in Residence

Through our artist in residence programme, 1a has been transformed into a community hub, with a variety of uses: a museum, an indigo dying/textile studio, a tea room, a portrait studio, a sound recording booth and a workshop space.

Our latest residency:

We’re delighted to introduce our latest artist in residence at 1a:
