Silk painting is an accessible and fun process, just be prepared to allow the dyes to flow and enjoy the vibrant colours. The first piece of Silk is included in the cost of the workshop, the next items used , Scarves, Cushion Covers etc are available to purchase to use for the final piece created. I run the silk painting workshops for small groups in my own studio in Bovey Tracey, however, I am prepared to travel and run workshops for larger groups if there is a suitable venue available near you. Bespoke courses to suit you can be arranged for a suitable date for participants, if 2 or more are booking in advance. Birthday treats work really well and can be made into surprise presents. Bed and Breakfast is available for those who are travelling further from home. Very reasonable @ £40 per person per night. There is also the option of an evening meal, with prior notice, at £10 per person per night. There are 2 double bedrooms available

What's included in the price?

The workshop fee includes refreshments Plus the use of all the equipment like frames, dyes, brushes etc that are necessary to create your own piece of work. As well as various sizes and shapes of scarf, there are cushion covers, hankies and ties or just squares of silk. I also have lots of chiffon shawls Silk materials are extra but all available to purchase on the day.
