Small postcard exhibition October 2021

This is a unique exhibition of over 100 small postcards on display in Edinburgh Palette, POP UP Gallery.

At this challenging time we at Space Artworks were very keen to reconnect with our artists and communities. The small postcard project came about to support and involve those who have been living in isolation in order to encourage creative expression and participation, with the ultimate aim of staging a group exhibition of artworks, which is now possible and open to all.

Beginners Sewing Course XL

Beginners Sewing Course XL

Thursday 7 October - Thursday 11 November
10:00 am - 12:00 pm

The Beginners sewing course XL is an extended version of the classic Beginners sewing course, and has become my most popular 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  all the different presser feet are for and you’ll learn how to measure and cut fabric.

Artisan Stitch is run by Jen Skedd, who is a life-long sewist and degree-trained Textile Designer and Artist. They hold a Certificate of Excellence and are rated ‘Best sewing classes in Edinburgh’ and ‘Best Private Sewing Education & Training Provider’.

Under sleep, where all the waters meet.

Under sleep, where all the waters meet.

Saturday 9 October - Saturday 23 October
9:00 am - 8:45 pm

(…)What is this face, less clear and clearer
The pulse in the arm, less strong and stronger —
Given or lent? more distant than stars and nearer than the eye
Whispers and small laughter between leaves and hurrying feet
Under sleep, where all the waters meet. (…) T.S.Eliot ‘Marina’

In this exhibition sculptures, ephemeral wall based pieces and sound interplay and collaborate in order to create a meditative, dream like space and perhaps invite you, the visitor, to travel inwards.

Opening hours:

Monday – Friday: 9am – 9pm

Saturday: 9am – 6pm

Sunday: 12pm – 5pm

Get Creative With Fused Glass

Get Creative With Fused Glass

Saturday 9 October
11:00 am - 4:30 pm

Have you ever tried fusing glass? 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.
Fusing enables individual pieces of glass 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 few days after the workshop, depending on the complexity of the project. All tools and materials will be provided.

The workshop is limited to two participants.
