Silk Painting Projects - Day 1, 2 and Day 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

DAY 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

DAY 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

DAY 3

Will help you develop the techniques you’ve learnt on the previous two courses – the project objects are the same as Day 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’s ready for you to immediately start (which will include ensuring you have the coloured materials of your choice, subject to availability) – but there is an extra charge of £20/person

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

Anna was as usual professional & very organised. The course was well presented & help always at hand if needed. A pleasure to work within Anna's workshop.
