An introduction to the most delicate and ancient of art forms – painting on silk.
Different from silk screen printing, silk paintings are one-off original artworks painted on real Habotai and Pongee silk.
During this relaxed and friendly workshop you will be guided through the process of creating your own silk paintings, from the design stage, to stretching the silk, to applying the gutta outliner and applying the silk paints themselves, as well as creating a few special effects!
Using summer flowers as inspiration you will create two flowery silk paintings during the workshop, one suncatcher or wooden framed piece for hanging from a window or wall and another stretched silk painting ready for framing or giving as a gift.
There is an additional cost of £15 payable to the tutor on the day, to cover the cost of materials including the silk fabric, wooden embroidery frames, suncatcher frames, gutta outliner tubes, silk paints, satin ribbons and card mounts.
Let your creative juices flow for a relaxing day of flowery silk painting fun!
