Contact course provider
About the Course
This is an introductory workshop for the complete beginner using iron fix paints and steam fix dyes. You will learn about the different types of silk available for painting and Prue will demonstrate how to use Gutta, salt effects and shading techniques. You will start by painting a printed silk card to get a feel for the paint and fabric. You will then practice a design using Gutta and salt techniques on a small panel, followed by painting a larger silk item such as a scarf using steam fix dyes.
