Caught on Canvas

Caught on Canvas

Friday 21 May - Friday 4 June
All Day

An online exhibition by Doodle Snout.

A selection of oil and watercolour portrait pieces depicting core moments from film and television moments over the last 50 years. The works in this exhibit are intended to capture the essence of each film through portrait work by focusing on the colours, the compositions, and the characters that mean all the difference between a psychedelic 70s classic, a cyberpunk 80s underdog, or a ground-breaking modern masterpiece.

You can view the entire exhibition here: https://www.edinburghpalette.co.uk/events-2/exhibitions/caught-on-canvas/

One-On-One Glass Jewellery Making Class

One-On-One Glass Jewellery Making Class

Saturday 29 May
11:00 am - 4:00 pm

If you are new to glass, but would like to design and make few pieces of your own bespoke jewellery, then this class is for you. You don’t need any prior skills or knowledge, just imagination and creativity. This is one-on-one workshop, but you can come with another person as long as it is a family member or someone from your support ‘bubble’.

We will use colorful fusable glass, which incorporates metals and is perfect for making sparkling jewellery, and both a microwave and a larger glass kiln.

In this workshop you will learn:
• the basics of fusing glass
• how to cut and layer glass in preparation for fusing
• how to fuse glass in a kiln
• post-fusing processing, such as grinding and polishing
• how to attach jewellery findings to glass

At the end of the workshop you should be able to take home a finished pendant (or two) and a pair of earrings (or two) of your own design. You are welcome to bring your own ideas or follow a pre-designed project. The skills that you will learn will help you start making glass jewellery at home or in a studio setting. Tools, and materials will be provided, but please bring an apron with you and wear a mask.
