Bridget's workshops are a great way of learning about the art of silk painting - Bridge provides expert tuition, bags of inspiration and not forgetting a very tasty home cooked lunch! A day with Bridget is also a very sociable, friendly occasion where you can enjoy experimeting with colour and fabric with like-minded people.
I had never tried silk painting before but with Bridget's excellent demonstration and support throughout the day I was amazed with the beautiful scarf I produced. I have been again and am now totally hooked. Bridget's lunches are wonderful too!! Have met some really friendly interesting ladies.
What an interesting and absorbing way to spend a day. I haven't painted since my teens and was surprised how technical, but easy, silk painting is. Really enjoyed my day and have been back twice to explore this medium. Lovely lunch, relaxed atmosphere, very informative and free to experiment. Excellent.
I booked a workshop with Bridget for a birthday present for my friend and our two children. Really enjoyable day. Bridget guided us through a thorough introduction to silk painting and then helped us work on a group project so that we could "play" with all the techniques and see the effects of using salt, etc. - this was very enjoyable. After a lovely lunch of home-made soup, bread and a yummy slice of cake, we went on to produce our own designs. We were all very pleased with our results. It was great fun using a new medium and it is something I would definitely like to try again.
