Silk Painting & Shibori Workshop

About the event

Join tutor Jan Campbell for an opportunity to try out two different, versatile textiles techniques and create two art works. Your truly individual pieces could be wearable art, or be incorporated into a variety of uses such as cushion making, wall hangings or over-stitching with embroidery techniques.

Firstly you will learn how to create Shibori, a Japanese tie-dyeing technique which produces very interesting patterns. Then the workshop will move on to painting on silk, trying traditional techniques including outline work, and using salt.

Please bring along an apron and disposable gloves.
