On Tree Time

On Tree Time

Friday 4 June - Sunday 20 June
All Day

‘On Tree Time’ is an exhibition about the ways in which trees adapt and endure. Although they move too slowly for us to perceive, over the span of centuries wood flows, trunks twist and limbs turn. Here Tansy Lee Moir presents a new body of work on paper in charcoal, pastel and oil, celebrating the resilience and life force of trees.

“When I begin to draw an ancient tree I’m struck by a powerful feeling of my being a short-lived creature amongst ancients.”

Tansy Lee Moir is an artist inspired by the forms and stories of old trees. Her art encourages us to look at trees in new ways and to think about our ancient, layered relationships with them as living organisms. Based just outside Edinburgh, she makes work in charcoal, pastel and oil and teaches drawing online and runs workshops.

The exhibition will be open to the public subject to current government guidelines. For opening times and bookings visit the exhibition website.  https://www.tansyleemoir.co.uk/gallery/on-tree-time/

It can also be viewed online here https://www.tansyleemoir.co.uk/gallery/on-tree-time/

Beginners Sewing Course XL

Beginners Sewing Course XL

Wednesday 9 June - Wednesday 14 July
1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

The Beginners sewing course XL is an extended version of the classic Beginners sewing course. It is a 6-week evening course, so there’s two extra projects to make. This extra sewing practice makes a huge difference to your sewing skill and confidence.

It is a good starting point to learn expert sewing techniques whether you want to progress into dressmaking, soft furnishing or craft projects. It’s also a great refresher if you’ve not sewn for a while. You’ll learn how to understand sewing machines, get experience of using different stitch types, learning about stitch lengths, widths and tensions. I’ll explain what the different presser feet are for and you’ll learn how to measure and cut fabric.

Get Creative With Fused Glass (one-on-one workshop)

Get Creative With Fused Glass (one-on-one workshop)

Saturday 19 June
11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Have you ever tried glass fusing? It is a lot of fun and utterly addictive. In this workshop you will learn how this is done and give it a go. You can make a beautiful glass bowl, a colorful suncatcher or something else that has a personal meaning to you. If you already have basic skills, you can work on your desired project or learn a new technique. This is a one-on-one workshop, you will get personal tuition. You can come with another person, as long it is a family member or someone from your support “bubble”.

Fusing glass enables individual pieces to be transformed into a single object when they are put together and exposed to high temperature in a kiln. Depending on the temperature used, different textures and other interesting visual effects can be achieved. Furthermore, placing the glass into a mould or on a prop can produce three-dimensional forms with varying complexity.

In this workshop you will:
• learn the basics of fusing glass
• become skilled in cutting glass and assembling simple forms
• learn how to achieve desired textures and other effects
• design and make your own glass objects to take home

Note that your creations will not be ready at the end of the workshop, but will be available to collect from the studio 2-3 days after the workshop, depending on the complexity of the project. All tools and materials will be provided.

To inquire or book this workshop, email Irina to: 523.glassart@gmail.com
