ALL MATERIALS INCLUDEDCome along and paint a silk scarf for yourself or as a gift for a friend.
No previous experience of silk painting or drawing necessary. Just choose your colours for the scarf then using clear or metallic outliners embellish with a border or motifs.
There will be lots of ideas and motifs to use or bring your own, a simple line drawing works best. Scarves can be further embellished with beads so if you have some bring those along too. We will also try out some techniques on a small piece of silk, these could be made into cards.Includes homemade lunch and refreshments
