Silk Painting Suncatchers with Sophie Tallis

Thursday, 18 July 2019 - 10:00 till 16:00

“Art and Craft Workshops”


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.
