The Art of Silk Painting

Learn the basic techniques of the exciting art of silk painting in this relaxing workshop. Choose from a wide variety of inspirational designs from many cultures, ranging from traditional Celtic images to South Asian peacocks, which you can trace onto your silk, so no need to be expert at drawing, or you can bring your own designs if you prefer. Discover how to get the best effects from vibrant silk paints and experiment with salt to create interesting special effects to create your own unique piece of silk art.

This introduction to silk painting allows time to create a finished piece of art for framing or to make into a cushion later.

Age 16+

Free tea and coffee throughout the day.

In all of Linda Hardings workshops, for adults or schools, she tries to use objects as a starting point, to inspire participants. She has a wide collection of objects and artefacts from around the world which she uses to teach about the rich heritage and culture of the countries and faiths around the world and in Leicester itself, and which also inspire wonderful art workshops and her own textile art
