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 2017
I am going to be teaching a Creative Journey course for keen beginners 26 – 30 June 2017 at my studio in Edinburgh. Changing the format slightly from the last two 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.

AUTUMN 2017 DAY WORKSHOPS

SUNSET COLOURS Wednesday 6 September 10am – 4pm £35

Colour is often a stumbling block for many quilters. Bring a picture of your favourite sunset and we will evaluate, explore and use the colours in different ways to produce a dynamic abstract piece of work full of atmosphere and colourful energy. At the end of the workshop students will have a greater understanding of the main types of colour schemes – complementary, analogous and triadic – and how to use these to effect in their work. This knowledge can be transferred into contemporary or traditional quiltmaking. Students should have basic rotary cutting and sewing machine skills. A Requirements List will be supplied. Students will be very close to having a completed item at the end of the workshop.

POPPIES IN PAINT, PAPER AND STITCH Wednesday 20 September 10am – 4pm £40

Use transfer painting techniques to create images of poppies on fabric and embellish with machine quilting and beads.  Transfer paints are quick and easy to use and various ways of applying them will be covered in the workshop along with some machine quilting tips to produce a beautiful 14” square panel.  Achievable in the day!  (Machine quilting techniques based on Machine Quilting Made Easy by Maureen Noble).
