Silk Painting Workshop

April 21, 2011

Thurs 19th May, 12-3pm at The Smithy Studios, 1 Smithy Fold, Glossop, SK13 8DD

£12 (glossopmoot* co-operative members)/£18 – plus cost of materials (estimated at £2 – £3)

In a small group (8 maximum), learn how to paint on silk using the ‘gutta’ technique of drawing a design. The image is then painted with iron fixed paints. Bring along your own ideas, or use designs provided by the tutor. Take home your own hand made card in glowing colours. All materials are provided. The technique can be adapted for painting silk scarves, suncatchers, or pictures, and the workshop is fine for complete beginners. The workshop will show you how to mount your design into a card like the ones you can view on our workshop page.

There are 8 places on this workshop – please email to reserve a place. Your place will be secured on receipt of your payment for the workshop.
