Silk Painting at Newark Park

Many thanks to the National trust staff at Newark Park for allowing us to have a silk painting workshop. We used the sunny book room on the top floor and were able to enjoy wonderful views as the inspiration flowed.

Silk Painting Classes

On Sunday 26th June I will be leading some silk painting classes at Newark Park, Ozleworth, Gloucestershire. All materials will be supplied on the day and the class will guide you through the fun of designing an image on silk that may be  inspired by the wonderful objects on display at Newark Park or simply an idea that you hold. 

Here are some examples of work made by children at previous workshops. 

Materials used - medium weight silk habitai approx 24cm square, clear gutta and pebeo seta-silk iron fix paints.

The class costs £9 and is aimed at children aged 10 and over. The morning session will start at 11.30 and the afternoon 14.00 for 1 and 1/2 hours. Numbers are limited to 10 per session.

Adults who are new to silk painting may also enjoy the class...

Please contact Newark Park on 01453 842644 to book a place.

We look forward to seeing you.

Setting up at Newark Park

Yesterday we set up at Newark Park ready for our show 'New Worke'. I really felt privileged to be in such a lovely house with very helpful staff, hanging our new work with fellow Brunel Broderers. The day was very relaxed but busy as you can see in these images.

Please come along and see the exhibition which runs until 11th July.
