Our Fabulous Silk Scarf Painting Workshops, are perfect for beginners and those with experience alike. The Covid protocols are in place to allow us to be creative in a safe and secure way. The day is relaxed & structured and begins with an introduction to Silk, a demonstration of the way the beautiful professional dyes work, the methods of application and the process of fixing and finishing your wonderful creations, in the Shibori style. ​ Your tutor for the day will be Ruth Rutherford, a professional, enthusiastic multi skilled designer, who will inspire and guide you, to enable you to get the most from your day. You will make practice samplers, experimenting with colour and technique. You will try various styles of Shibori, being amazed at your results. You will then create a beautiful, vibrant and  luxurious silk scarf 114 x 28cm to take home with you. There are a variety of sizes/shapes available. PLEASE NOTE.... IF THERE IS A GROUP OF FOUR FRIENDS THAT WOULD LIKE A DATE OF YOUR CHOOSING, PLEASE GET IN TOUCH TO DISCUSS. I AM HAPPY TO ACCOMMODATE WHERE POSSIBLE ?
