This course will introduce you to the basics of silk painting and will allow you to develop these techniques to create your own pieces as the weeks go on.
You will also be shown how to stretch and frame the pieces to fit a standard sized frame.
Silk painting is often reported to be a therapeutic medium and with its range of lively colours it can be great fun to experiment with.
No experience required.
