This hour is where most students gain their confidence to work with the medium. The remaining time is spent on your individual final outcome. We will look at other Artists work and draw from their work as inspiration for our own. Reflecting on the techniques that you have developed as well as that of other Artists. by the end of the session we aim to produce a complete painting on canvas/paper from secondary resources.

Heather is a super teacher; knowledgeable and supportive. Had a lovely time rediscovering the joys of silk painting.... in a much easier way than when I first had a go some 15 years ago!

The workshop is well equipped and has a homely, relaxing atmosphere - mainly due to Heather’s kind nature and the appearance of the rather handsome cat (Chewbacca)

All in all a super session; definitely going back for more! If you’ve never tried it, I’d urge you to give it a whirl... you won’t regret it!

Thanks again Heather!
