Create unique wearable art with luxury silk fabric at this Silk Painting Retreat at Lisnavagh House and Gardens, Rathvilly, Co. Carlow. Silk painting is easy, it’s fun and you achieve 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. Hand painting on silk is suited to both beginners and improvers.
Jean Robertson is registered with the E.T.B. and has tutored a number of successful Silk Painting classes with local I.C.A. and Active retired groups.
