The original Granary contains four floors. On the top floor a light and airy gallery and studio space is equipped for art classes and exhibitions. Other floors are equipped for fabric classes, stained glass design and woodworking, with the Haddington Camera Club occupying a studio on the first floor. The Lamp of Lothian Trust office is located on the first floor. In addition, a conference facility, which can hold up to 20 people is available to be booked through the Bridge Centre office (01620 823137).
The ground floor is primarily used for wood carving; where we have custom built benches for this purpose. The room is also regurlarly used for our basketry classes. It has natural lighting and a nice outlook over the Poldrate Mill. Many of the craft pieces produced by our students are exhibited in our Annual Exhibition, which is open to all members. Due to many donations over the years, we have acquired a large range of tools, allowing all abilities and multiple users to enjoy the experience at once.
The first floor studio is available for a variety of crafts. It is well lit and has a large central work table with electric points. There are two sinks, with ample work surfaces down one side. There are lockable storage cupboards and secondary thermal linings for the windows during the winter. The layout of this floor is very versatile for a variety of activities. It has automatic lighting, and the room is centrally heated.
The third floor of the Granary is a very large, well lit and centrally heated studio. It is an excellent location for exhibitions or arts shows due to the natural light. Life drawing classes take place throughout the year, and our acrylic painting, watercolour and oil painting classes are also very popular.
The Mault House
The Mault House has been the home of the award winning Bridge Centre Music Project, and currently the Motorcycle Projects. There is also a fully equipped recording studio where instrumental tuition is offered to local young people. The Music Project studio was totally refurbished and modernised largely through the generosity and support from IKEA. The Motorcycle Project also conduct their workshops in the Lamp Conference Room.
The Centre is a meeting place for all age groups with a variety of interests. Please visit the Bridge Centre Facebook pages for more information.
