**FULLY BOOKED**

This one-day workshop provides a structured introduction to the techniques of painting on silk and a master class in how to apply colour and create stunning designs. Following an introduction to the materials, artist Hilary Simon will demonstrate different ways to create a variety of effects on silk using salt, layering, alcohol and methods of applying the dyes and gutta gum. The dyes are French Dupont which mix beautifully and run like vibrant watercolours. Following the demonstration, time is spent creating designs on paper and testing techniques on a sample silk square. During the afternoon participants will create their own 15” silk square, with one-to-one guidance in their choice of dyes and approach.

At the end of the workshop participants will take home their new skill plus the test silk square and completed work of art, perfect for framing, hanging or ready to fix and hem. The workshop is suitable for beginners and people of all abilities alike.

Hilary Simon is an artist and curator. She has exhibited her work in solo exhibitions worldwide and her paintings have been widely published with her designs used for book covers, greeting cards pottery and rugs. She has run workshops internationally in the UK, America and Mexico, most recently at West Dean College, Fashion and Textile Museum, Marlborough Summer School and Art in Action.

Price: £80 includes equipment* and exhibition entry.

* The fee includes two silk squares (a smaller test square and a 15” piece for the final design) and the use of equipment during the workshop. Please bring a bag or envelope to take your work home with you.
