Silk Painting Workshops

workshop-page-collageJoin me, Sheila Jones in my studio, The Mulberry Shed, on the beautiful Polden Hills in Somerset (10 minutes off J23 of the M5) for a Silk Painting Workshop. Enjoy a fun, creative day learning about the art of silk-painting using outliner and other techniques with steam-set silk dyes. Experiment with creating your own designs, painting on silk and producing vibrant art to wear or hang on the wall.

The days run from 10.30am to 4.30pm, with a maximum of 4 students to ensure everyone has space to work and time with me. Unlimited tea/coffee and biscuits provided – just bring a packed lunch and your creativity!

The cost is £60 per student and includes the use of equipment, your silk handkerchief, scarf or fabric and the steaming process needed to set the silk dyes. Following the Workshop your pieces will be steamed in my professional silk-steamer, washed, pressed and sent to you.

For beginners, come along and learn the art of silk painting on ‘An Introduction to Silk Painting Workshop’, where we will start the day by stretching the silk on frames, and have the opportunity to experiment with using the outliner and dyes to create mini works of art on silk handkerchiefs. In the afternoon – or as soon as you are ready! – you will be able to design and paint your own silk scarf or picture.

For those wishing to develop or refresh their skills and learn new techniques, such as using cold wax as a resist or adding sugar to create fun effects – or perhaps you’d simply like to work on new projects in the Studio – then do get in touch and find out which Workshop may suit you best.

SCHEDULED DATES FOR AUTUMN 2018 ARE LISTED BELOW – Additional dates, half-day workshops, and individual tuition can be arranged. Gift vouchers available on request. If a Workshop you’d like to join is shown as fully booked I may add extra dates so do get in touch and see if there’s a date available to suit you.
