A day of silk painting – an ideal Christmas or birthday present or just an opportunity to learn a new skill!
Silk painting is an accessible and fun process, just be prepared to allow the dyes to flow and enjoy the vibrant colours. A 45cm square piece of silk is the starting point to learn the process, stretching silk onto a frame, using outliner and learning how the dyes mix and flow.
Do bring some ideas and images with you of what you would like to try or be inspired by this lovely setting. Experimenting is a big part of the workshop, with an opportunity to try things out first before you go for it!
£45 includes professional tuition, all frames, brushes, dyes and equipment provided, along with a starter square of silk, tea coffee and biscuits. There is a charge for extra silk pieces on the day with a chance to make a scarf etc., or bring your own silk. 10.30am – 3.30pm Book early, limited spaces. Bring your own packed lunch or enjoy 10% off in the Cathedral Cafe. Booking available from 01392 285983 (Monday to Friday) and online.
