Embodying Nature - Intuitive Painting & Meditation Course

Tuesday 10 September - Tuesday 1 October
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

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 four weeks course will focus on the connection with nature and will use the four elements (Earth, Water, Fire, Air) to journey through different aspects of the Self. When we embody nature we are free to be who we are and can connect with the deepest and sacred part of ourselves. Through guided imagery, intuitive painting, and freewriting we will gently explore our lives, creating the space to let go of the old and welcome the new.

All the materials will be provided: acrylic paints, paper, paintbrushes, aprons, towels, sponges etc.

Everyone is welcome and no experience in painting or meditation is required.

General Level Iyengar Yoga class – some experience preferred

Yoga Now studio is on the 4th floor of St.Margaret’s House. It is a beautiful, spacious and fully equipped yoga studio – we even have a wonderful wall of yoga ropes! We provide mats and everything else you need for our structured and engaging classes.

Regular practice of yoga can help with both physical and mental wellbeing. Our General level classes are mixed level classes – some previous experience is preferred but beginners are welcome (we don’t go over everything in the same structured way each week as we do in the Level 1 classes).

Free-Motion Embroidery

Friday 13 September
10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Free-motion embroidery, also known as Free-Machine embroidery, is a useful core skill for Textile Artists, Quilters and Felters. Many of my other creative workshops involve free-motion embroidery so if you’re not sure which one to take, then I recommend this workshop as a starting point. No ‘drawing’ experience is necessary.

This workshop will teach you how to use a sewing machine as a creative tool. Whether you want to quilt, create mixed media art, make cards, or embroidery on your clothes, this course will show you a variety of ways to do it.

Who is this aimed at?
Quilters, Would-be textile artists, dressmakers or crafters looking for something a bit different!

What will I learn?
This workshop aims to teach you the basic techniques of free-motion embroidery:

setting up the machine for free-motion embroidery
guiding the needle to draw with thread
how to obtain a variety of patterns and texture effects
use of fabric stabilisers
the afternoon project will help you practice, to create a small stitched picture.

Rendition

Friday 13 September
10:30 am - 12:30 pm

Rendition, a radical new work from Tragic Carpet Visual Theatre Company – Friday 13th September in Edinburgh, 10.30am-12.20pm.

Rendition is a potent and immersive installation which uses detailed, up-to-the-minute academic research findings from The Rendition Project to tell the story of one man’s nightmare experience as the first suspect to be taken into the CIA’s detention programme. Freda O’Byrne, artistic director and sole performer, uses an innovative mix of puppetry, soundscapes and theatre to visualise the human rights violations committed by US and UK governments in the aftermath of 9/11 – and explores the juxtaposition between extreme vulnerability and absolute power. See the trailer here.
