This one day course is a perfect introduction to silk painting, for both beginners and as a refresher course. We explore the main techniques of painting on silk, including gutta work and various texture effects. You will go home with several sample pieces and some creative ideas of how to use them. We will be working with iron fixed silk paints, so you will be able to take all your work home with you at the end of the day. I also have a range of artwork, silk painting kits and equipment available to purchase.
To ensure you have the time and space to develop your technique, I limit the spaces on this course to 4 people.
Custom dates can be arranged - please contact me to discuss your requirements. I look forward to meeting you and sharing my enthusiasm for this wonderful craft.
