Silk painting and slow stitching - notebook cover



This workshop is a full day. I will create a silk painting picture in Gutta and apply the background, then your first task is to complete the silk painting adding silk paints. You can get in touch before the workshop to choose a design. Once complete, the picture will be the base for you to add appliqué and stitching to embellish the picture. If you are new to slow stitching, it’s just sewing a straight stitch to fabric to enhance the silk painting. It’s really good fun and easy. If you have a sewing machine you can bring that too, to embellish with machine stitches or a combination. I provide all the equipment you need. I provide a hard backed note book so you can create a decorative cover - or bring your own A5 note book or diary. You could also just mount your piece as a picture. Mount provided. I provide tea and coffee but you will need to bring your lunch.

What's included in the price?

All equipment, a hard backed note book or mount. Tea , coffee and biscuits.

Hello, I retired from teaching 7 years ago and started to develop my arty side. I worked in watercolour and acrylics attending numerous workshops to develop my art skills. Two / three years ago I stumbled on Craftcourses and booked a silk painting course and I loved it. Silk painting then became my preferred art form. I then discovered batik using hot wax. Some of my silk paintings I go on to embellish with stitching and appliqué. I am passionate about my art and now run workshops, exhibit my work and sell my work through artisan markets. Many of my works have been printed to make greetings cards.
