Event Details

Silk painting (vegan options are available) is an accessible, versatile and fun process. You will learn how to prepare the silk ready for painting, transfer your Estuary image and add a ­­coloured resist to stop the dyes running into each other.

Sally will show you how to achieve a variety of different effects and textures using the vibrant coloured dyes.

You will take home a piece of art for framing, hanging or making into cushions, bags or many other items.

Sally will provide templates to draw or trace from, linked to the theme of each class, but you are very welcome to bring your own design.

Sally Chinea

I have a 1st Class Honours Degree in Fine Art and I’m an art club leader, arts award advisor and part of the team organising the Rochford and Hadleigh art trail. I’m proud to be working on site-specific projects for the National Trust, who now hold my work in their permanent collection.I predominantly work creating 3D, textile pieces, but also manipulate and re-contextualize a wide variety of mundane, found and discarded materials to create a contrast between something which was worthless into something that is valued; value, created by the investment of manual labour, care, consideration and time.
