Studio Classes

I hold a weekly class at my Studio on Thursday mornings and afternoons and classes that are run on a day-a-month basis and day workshops. These monthly and ‘one off’ workshops suit students that have to fit in a hectic work and home schedule and allows time for ‘homework’ and/or research between classes. If classes are oversubscribed then additional classes can be scheduled for another time. The timetabling of classes also allows for individual/small group tuition. Please email me for more information about any of the above. My studio is located at WASPS, 2/3 West Park Place, Dalry, Edinburgh, EH11 2DP.

WEEK LONG CREATIVE JOURNEY COURSE 2018, 18 – 22 June
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.

SPRING 2018 DAY WORKSHOPS

POPPIES IN PAINT, PAPER AND STITCH  Wednesday 24 January 10am – 4pm £40

In this workshop I will introduce you to working with transfer paints to give you a variety of effects on fabric. The techniques are easy and don’t require artistic ability – just a desire to produce something original as no two pieces will be alike.

Poppies with their glorious colours are a great subject for a first try at this style of painting.
