1st to 30th Aug

Edinburgh’s The Nomads Tent is launching its first exhibition since lockdown: renowned Edinburgh textile artist Pat Archibald is presenting her students’ annual show and her own work in Nomadic Inspirations, a quilting journey, featuring over 30 colourful and eclectic art quilts in the result of a year-long creative process. Each work is inspired by a tribal artefact at The Nomads Tent, and there will be interactive displays and hands-on stitching, and quilting kits for sale. A video introduction and further information are available on the gallery’s website.

Pat Archibald will also be giving two illustrated talks at 3pm and 6:30pm on Wednesday 5th August, taking her audience on a visual journey to far-flung places she has visited that have shifted her mindset on world issues, fired her imagination and inspired her art quilts. The gallery advises that advanced booking is essential, with tickets costing £7. The talks will be live-streamed, with the opportunity to ask questions.

The website also includes special offers and a gift voucher scheme, plus an invitation to share pictures and recollections of objects.
