Roost is a design & maker project based in Muirhouse by resident artist Linday 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. ROOST uses bird ecology to explore ideas of home, place and identity within community.
