PCAA Community Poetry Booklet project

and Free Workshops!

The PCAA obtained funding to produce a Penicuik Community Poetry Book, full of poems written by YOU! the people of Penicuik, with a FREE workshop with FREE followup to help you get started.

The FREE workshops are on Saturday 25th June 2021 2pm, or Sunday 26th June 2021 2pm. They will either take place in St James the Less Church Hall, Broomhill Road (“up the lane”) or by Zoom, depending on government guidelines and participants’ preference.



The exhibitions in the cafe gallery change on a monthly basis. Opening events for new exhibitions generally take place on the first Sunday of the month between 2.00pm and 4.00pm. These are in abeyance at present because of COVID restrictions but we aim to recommence them as soon as possible. These events are free and a re good way to meet the artist.

Art work on display is usually for sale. It is a great way to acquire originaL art at reasonable prices.
