Woman with ARTitude

Woman with ARTitude

Friday 12 March - Thursday 25 March
All Day

ARTitude is a short version of our group name – Women with ARTitude.  We’ve been meeting on a monthly basis for about two years, originally to offer support and encouragement in our artistic expression. We’ve all come to art through diverse routes which makes for an interesting and stimulating mixture of styles and subject matter. In April last year we had to postpone our exhibition at the Union Gallery, Edinburgh, however we continue creating new pieces of work to exhibit in the future and we are therefore delighted to have this opportunity to showcase some of our work online through Edinburgh Palette. We are Deb Ball, Sheena Berry, Gloria Henderson, Evie Jamieson, Barbara Moyes and Lorna Nisbet.

Handmade in Britain The Interactive Virtual Craft Fair

Tuesday 23 March - Sunday 28 March

We at Handmade in Britain are delighted to announce the second edition of our Interactive Virtual Craft Fair that is due to take place towards the end of March. Sharing the month with International Women’s Day and Mother’s Day, this new edition will focus on supporting and celebrating women in craft, as well as makers from BAME communities.

As an organisation, we are keen to reflect the full range of backgrounds and perspectives found in contemporary Britain, and have made a conscious decision to do our part in creating a more diverse and inclusive craft and design community. The second edition of our virtual craft fair marks the beginning of this journey.
The first edition of our Virtual craft fair, that took place between 10-15 November 2020, saw 64 artists exhibit, 17564 unique visitors from 80 countries, and over 40 live sessions, demonstrations, and craft workshops.

It is an ongoing Class but students are guided individually through the process of creating an Icon.

Not recommended for complete beginners but if you have some experience drawing or painting but not Icon painting please contact me and we can discuss if it will be suitable for you.

You will be guided through all the stages of creating an Icon. You will be supported in conveying your own ideas and a personal style.

Peaceful music played in between feedback will help you come to a quiet and meditative place.
