About the Course
Join me in my studio, The Mulberry Shed, and enjoy a fun creative day learning about silk painting using steam-set dyes. This 'More Techniques' Workshop is for those who wish to find out more about the range of silk painting techniques you can use to create different exciting effects. You may already have tried using dyes and outliner (gutta) but would like to develop your skills further and have fun experimenting.
Come along and try out using cold wax as a resist to achieve a faux-batik effect, try using stamps or using the dyes with 'anti-spread' and 'thickener', or adding a sprinkling of sugar as you paint to create a fun effect.
Experiment with creating your own designs and producing vibrant, beautiful art to wear or hang on the wall - or if you wish to spend the day experimenting with all the new techniques then why not create a 'techniques sampler' to keep as a reference.
The Workshop runs from 10.30am - 4.30pm, with a maximum of 4 students to ensure everyone has space to work and lots of time for tuition and asking questions.

What's included in the price?
The cost includes the use of equipment and silk dyes, silk handkerchief, scarf or fabric and the steaming process needed afterwards to set the dyes. Free tea/coffee and biscuits provided throughout the day...just bring a packed lunch and your creativity!
A fantastic course! A great introduction to a new craft.
Sheila is most welcoming and takes you through the stages of silk painting in a friendly and relaxed manner. The Mulberry shed is located within a beautiful village in Somerset.
