This is a fabulous course in a beautiful venue, led by experienced and highly skilled tutors who made us feel supported and relaxed at every stage.
As a newbie to silk painting, the alchemy of the process was a revelation to me and it was so exciting to see my first scarf design taking shape. I was thrilled to find that, even with my lack of artistic skills and experience, it was possible to create such a beautiful result.
Liz catered skilfully for people at all levels, taking us through the process before we did our test pieces to experiment with the materials and technique. While beginners learned the basics, more experienced students focused on developing their ideas, technique and range. Liz and Pia were on hand, listening to each person's questions and approach and offering useful suggestions and advice at each stage.
It was fascinating to see the wide range of designs and approaches across the group, with each scarf reflecting the individual's personality and approach.
In all, an inspiring creative escape. Highly recommended.
