Meet Your Maker Event

Come and see me on the 17th November where I will be showcasing recent works and actively working on current projects. You can come and watch me work, learn a few stitches, or simply chat, relax and browse through the living memories in the shop. Everyone welcome!

Craft Scotland's Meet Your Maker programme will present a series of Saturday workshops as part of a craft reminiscence project Making Memories.

The Little Shop of Memory will play host to a group of wonderfully talented Scottish designer makers, sharing their knowledge and skills in exchange for your stories and memories of making.

Call in to The Little Shop of Memory at Ocean Terminal Shopping Centre on one of the following Saturdays to say hello and Meet the Makers!

Silversmith Bryony Knox - Saturday 29th October
Furniture Maker Isabelle Moore - Saturday 5th November

Contemporary Embellishment Workshop

  • The National Galleries of Scotland

Contemporary Embellishment - Intermediate

Wednesday's 2nd Nov - 30th Nov 2016 - 5 week course

Led by Chloe Patience and inspired by artworks in the collection, including The Goldfinch by Carel Fabritius on loan to the Gallery. Experiment with creative hand stitching and beading techniques and create beads and embellishments by upcycling objects and materials. Finished designs can be sewn onto fabric or attached to an item of clothing. Suitable for moderately experienced hand sewers or those who have attended Sewing and Beading for Beginners. (You will be encouraged to develop the techniques learned at any of Chloe's Beading for Beginners classes, so a general knowledge of beading would be advisable.)
