From the late nineteenth century Dean Village hosted an artists’ studio: the Dean Studios found their home in the church that used to occupy the now-long-empty lot between Bell’s Brae and Belford Road.  One of the many artists to work out of this space was Phyllis Bone (1894–1972); during her time in the Dean Studios she became the first female member of the Royal Scottish academy.

Georgian Antiques is hosting the first ever retrospective of her work, to run for the duration of this year’s Festival.
