About the Course
This is a full day workshop. Starts prompt 9.30am.
During the morning we will be deciding what type of effects you want to achieve and looking at the ink colours and deciding on designs. You will be shown how to prepare the silk for painting.
I will show you by demonstration different effects and you will be working on small silk pieces for practice. It's fun and can be messy, so don't wear your best clothes!

I have a superb silk scarf that I painted at a workshop with Constance. My son also painted one for his Granny. We both thoroughly enjoyed experimenting with different techniques and loved our finished scarves.
Constance is a fantastic tutor and has incredible creative enthusiasm!

I treated my daughter to a silk painting course for a birthday present. We spent a lovely day with Constance who guided us through the various silk painting techniques whilst allowing us to explore our creativity. We came away having learned some new skills and inspired to create other works of art at home!
