Events - 3 Sep 20


Friday 21 August - Friday 4 September
12:00 am - 12:00 pm

This ONLINE exhibition showcases the work of four artists who have worked throughout the COVID-19 lockdown and responded to it in different ways.  The last four months have left some of us with a sense of severance from our connection with everyday activities and a break from our usual practice. However, our need to reconnect and communicate with each other and audiences remains strong.  The work we show is our attempt to overcome the disconnect imposed by the viral pandemic and respond to our precious world.

Rags to Bags - a creative upcycling workshop

Thursday 3 September
10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Rags to Bags is a textile art workshop with a difference. A gorgeous and unique evening bag from a pile of fabric scraps? This is textile upcycling at its most glamourous.
This workshop is a spin-off from the extremely popular ‘Rags to Riches’ except you get to make a gorgeous little evening bag too.

Artisan Stitch won a Certificate of Excellence in 2019 and is rated ‘Best sewing classes in Edinburgh’. Tutored by Jen Skedd who is a lifelong sewist, degree-trained textile designer, and member of the Embroiderers Guild.

We will:
• repurpose old clothing, household textiles, and scraps of trimmings
• use the utility stitches of a basic sewing machine for decorative effects
• learn how to use metallic transfer foils to add a bit of bling.
• make a lovely little evening bag in your choice of two styles offered.
