Silk Painting Courses - LEVEL 1, 2 & 3

I run 3 one-day courses which together cover most of the techniques you'll need to create your own silk-painting.

DAY 1 PROJECTS - cushion, hanging, cards

LEVEL 1 – The Basics

  • Your design
  • Framing the silk
  • Applying the outliner
  • Painting with silk dyes
  • Basic use of colour
  • Painting the background
  • Basic use of shading
  • Special Effects (Part 1)
DAY 2 PROJECTS - scarf, detailed silk painting, mounted picture, suncatcher

LEVEL 2 – Basics continued

* Further techniques for shading

* Painting a background with more than one colour

* Fixing mistakes

* Detailed outlining

* Special Effects (Part 2):-

 

  • Watermark patterning – using water and alcohol 
  • Washing out with alcohol
  • Colour transition using more than one colour
  • Salt effects

LEVEL 3

Will help you develop the techniques you’ve learnt on the previous two courses – the project objects are the same as Level 2, but with more detailed design options.

OR.......

You can do a project of your own choice (approx A4 in size).

I can prepare your design so it is suitable for a silk painting project, and be ready for you to immediately start  – but there is an extra charge of £15/person

Otherwise you'll need to have your design prepared beforehand, as I cannot guarantee you’ll finish in a day.
