Join us for this relaxed, therapeutic activity that offers a satisfying technique for colouring fabric. The smooth surface of the silk provides a good surface which diffuses colour evenly. Gutta outliner is then used to outline elements and contain the colour and other techniques will be taught that add an interesting dimension.
At the end of the day you will have a variety of silk pieces that you can take home to frame or wear!
