“A Georgian Razzmatazz at Redhall Walled Garden”

Posted by chdot on June 19, 2008

If you’ve been to Redhall Walled Garden (normal opening 9am-3pm, Monday to Friday) before, you’ll know what a delightful, tranquil place it is – especially at mid summer.

When it has one of it’s Open Days there’s even more fun to be had. This year it’s billed as a “Georgian Razzmatazz“.

“There will be a variety of Georgian crafts on offer such as spinning, pottery, flower orienteering and lantern portraits. There will also be pony trap rides, face painting and an organic café, with the option to purchase plants from the garden.”

It’s fairly easy to find even though it’s hidden away in the Water of Leith valley in Craiglockhart Dell. It’s at the end of a long driveway off Lanark Road (map) – pass the delightful house created by extending the original cottage designed by Sir James Gowans.

Alternatively travel along the Union Canal and a short way up the section of the Water of Leith Walkway that used to be the railway line to Balerno.

    This party was definitely the best one I have attended…managed to enjoy three seriously fun activities…all of them with skilled teachers: Silhouette drawing, millinery, and bookmaking.
    THanks to the good folks at the Garden for their careful planning, great musical offerings (scottish folk music and then a very good singer/songwriter with his own electric piano).
    Oh, and ballon-twisting by the Palestinian clown Gili…who will perform an hour’s mime show this Saturday at….er..(think) will get back about that…

    Redhall is a discriminatory bullying place that allows some of its clients to exclude others and to openly have inner and outer circles of social favour, gives the women a veto over what events the men should be allowed to, even including public events in their own time, tells autistic victims “cliquiness is life” and advises them to accept and cooperate in their own exclusion.
