New Year New Work


We hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and are gearing up for a fun filled New Year. There’s definitely a buzz about the city as it prepares for the famous street party and concert in the gardens.

Just in time for the New Years celebrations, local artist Susie Wright has stopped by with her new screen print Fireworks! it catches the atmosphere of Edinburgh perfectly. Beautiful bright almost neon colours screen printed on to a dark navy stock. This is a limited edition of 20.

It’s a real eye catcher and a perfect momento from your time in Edinburgh.

With so many artists either from edinburgh or inspired by our fair city, we have lots for you to choose from. Voyages Over Edinburgh and Old Town Bikes by David Fleck are great celebratory prints and popular with our customers to remember their trip to the city.

Voyages Over Edinburgh Open Edition

You can see our full collection of Edinburgh inspired prints in our online shop.

Can’t make it to Edinburgh and need inspiration for your New Years Party? How about a Party in Space? Andy Smith can help you with that.


New Year also means New Resolutions, Exercise more…… We definitely want to get out on our bikes more. This screen print by Rebecca Kaye will inspire you to get you out on those two wheels!

Whatever you get up to this New Year we hope you have a good one! Here’s to 2015 and all those resolutions you make. We hope you keep them.

See you all in 2015,  Bringing you lots of new and exciting work from your favourite Red Door artists and some new ones too!
