Outreach Taster Workshop: Painting and Dying Silk

Outreach Taster Programme - bringing the arts to you!

Using the "gutta" or outline technique and a silk frame, create your own piece of textile art. 

Jan will guide you through the various techniques and materials used to release your inner creativity. Watch as your work comes alive as the vibrant silk dyes and paints are applied.

And learn the basics of  "Shibori' an ancient Japanese dying technique that involves tying, gathering or twisting the silk before dying to create a unique pattern. Jan will combine this with her own precision dying technique to make your pieces truly original. 

Facilitated by Jan Campbell
