Edinburgh Libraries’ first ever colouring-in groups for adults will be getting underway soon at Ratho and Sighthill, in response to the craze that’s made its way here from mainland Europe.
In France, sales of colouring in books for adults outstrip those of recipe books. Seen as a way to reduce stress, many adults on this side of the channel have also been joyfully rediscovering their childhood pastime, with discussions about colour combinations and favourite designs receiving hundreds of comments on social media.
Our colouring-in groups will provide tea, pencils and some very intricate designs to get to work on.
The Ratho group starts on Friday 15th May 11am-12.30pm and will meet every fortnight thereafter.
The Sighthill Library group starts on Monday 20th May 6.30pm-7.30pm and will get together weekly.
