Intuitive Painting Course

Tuesday 4 June - Tuesday 9 July
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

“Intuitive painting is a powerful spiritual and creative practice designed to connect people with their intuition, and inner guidance”

The classes combine intuitive painting, meditation, and writing. They provide a safe and positive space for free expression, with the aim to develop an intuitive approach to the creative process. Art is used as a tool for pure self-expression, healing, and transformation.

Participants have the chance to work on any subject, emotion or thought they wish to explore through the process, however, a general theme is always provided. A short guided meditation opens and closes the practice and helps to relax the mind and the body.

The course includes some introduction to the acrylic painting technique as well as some guidance through the creative process. No experience is required and all the materials will be provided.

WHEN: Tue 4th of June – Tue 9th of July, 6-8pm (6 weeks course)
WHERE: Edinburgh Palette Studio G5, 151 London Rd, Edinburgh EH7 6AE
EXCHANGE: 6 weeks £130.00 – £110.00 EARLY BIRDS discount available till the 22nd of May! All the materials are included.

Kids Hand Embroidery

Thursday 4 July - Thursday 1 August
3:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Hand Embroidery is a lovely creative activity for children to learn. In this sewing class for ages 8-12, we’ll be making a felt hearts and birds. This is a lovely school holiday activity for children.

I learned to sew as a very young child. My earliest memories involve playing with fabric scraps. Sewing develops manual dexterity and excellent hand/eye coordination. and encourages focus and concentration. Plus it gives them a huge sense of achievement and self-worth.  It also stimulates a child’s imagination and creativity.

What will my child learn?
We’ll be learning some common hand embroidery stitches
using felt  to make a stuffed hearts or birds and decorating them with buttons.

Course arrangements
All fabrics and equipment provided.

Artisan Stitch has recently won a certificate of excellence for best sewing classes in Edinburgh. I am insured and hold a PVG (Disclosure Scotland) certificate. I have over 40 years sewing experience and over 20 years in a training & teaching role.
