STITCHTOPIA HOLIDAY IN GERMANY AND HAND STITCH IN THE HARZ MOUNTAINS
1st – 7th June 2018
This is a brand new 6-night tour led by myself to the german Quilters Guild Festival of Patchwork, Quilting and Textiles held in the riverside town of Celle. After our visit to the festival we will be travelling to the bewitching Harz mountains , a land of fairy tales. This is Germany’s secret hideaway and you will be sure to be enchanted by the little towns of steep-roofed houses and narrow, cobblestone streets, along with intriguing forests and rushing streams nestled below the mountains. We will be visiting the ‘Home of Jolanda’ for a trip to the patchwork and quilt shop in the spa town of Bad Lauterberg. Here we will have time to take part in a hand applique worksop with Jolanda herself – I just love Jolanda’s motto: “A bed without a quilt is like the sky without stars”.
I will be leading the trip and teaching a couple of workshops, so plenty of time to get creative!

WEEK LONG CREATIVE JOURNEY SUMMER SCHOOL IN EDINBURGH
18 – 22 June 2018
I am going to be teaching a Creative Journey course for keen beginners and those with some experience 18 – 22 June 2018 at my studio in Edinburgh. Changing the format slightly from the last few years we will look at all the elements of good design (colour, balance, composition and symbolism) whilst working on some basic exercises and then move onto designing a small piece that is meaningful to you. Each day I will highlight a design technique that I use in my own work and you are welcome to incorporate these ideas in your piece or do a small sample. This will be a week packed with ideas and inspiration.
The cost for Monday – Friday (three full days of tuition and two half days) will be £300 and that will include lunch on the full teaching days, coffee, tea, biscuits.
Contact me by email, info@patarchibald.com if you are interested.
