OPENING TIMES 10AM - 5PM (4.30PM SUNDAY)
The Scottish Quilting Show is a fabulous showcase of the finest patchwork and quilting, and highlights the wonderful work of Scottish quilters. Enjoy exciting exhibitions that encourage all aspects of this delightful and wonderfully creative art form. There’s talks, competitions, demonstrations and workshops - a true patchwork paradise!
This brilliant exhibition highlights handmade ceremonial textiles, and decorative artefacts from Egypt. Part of Sandra Hardy’s private collection, visitors can expect to see a rare glimpse into the land of Pharaohs and its rich and colourful textile heritage, including wonderful hangings by the Tentmakers of old Cairo.
Susan Chapman’s work is an observation of contemporary society, drawing from life. This activity demands very fast sketches as people walk together chatting and enjoying their companionship, going about their daily lives; a particular interest is their relationships one to another.
This exhibition includes a study of older women, men at work, and a vision of a world where all cultures will stand together.
Please note you will also need an entry ticket to The Scottish Quilting show, Hobbycrafts or Stitching & Sewing at SECC Glasgow.
Workshops last 60 minutes and cost £8.00 each. Workshops are limited to 10 spaces.
Note: it is important to arrive at the Workshop room, stand L30, five minutes before the start.

with Susan Chapman
Pattern and repetition are at the root of patchwork design. This class will enable students to create simple prints using easily available tools to produce graphic repetitive prints. From these they can make their own patterns and develop the ability to break down traditional symmetry to create exciting and contemporary designs.
In this session students will create simple printing blocks, learning a number of techniques. They will consider repetition and the combination of prints to form complex pattern. Students will work in paper and fabric and will learn how to assemble their prints into a simple book form.
All materials supplied, but students may like to bring a notebook and pen.
