Create unique wearable art in the beautiful surrounding of Lisnavagh House. Silk Painting is easy, it’s fun and you get startlingly beautiful results.
During a specially designed programme of classes you will be introduced to the gentle and relaxing art of hand painting on silk. Participants of all skill levels will design and hand paint a silk scarf which they will be able to take home and wear with pride.
Silk painting is the art of applying special dye to silks. The process begins with a luxurious base of precious white silk fabric. The purity and the intensity of colour that emerges during the painting process is truly amazing.
No experience is necessary and all materials are included. Groups are kept to a limited number for maximum tuition.
