Discover the creativity within yourself and learn about the surprising possibilities of experimental silk-painting. During the workshop you will learn the effects of working with various transparent layers, causing them to flow, but also to stop the paint. You will get to know how to work with brushes, templates, stamps and other tools. Most of all, you will learn to intuitively fill the white surface with colours and shapes. Each participant will have a large frame to stretch the silk on. The workshops are provided by Ellen Bakker.
Experimental silk-painting is mostly enjoyable and surprising. Participation in the workshops requires no experience at all.
Choice of 1-day, 2-day or 3-day workshops
The workshops provide a great deal of freedom to experiment as much as possible. In 1 or 2 days you can get to work painting samples on silk fabrics. You may also work towards an end product, such as a beautiful, smooth silk scarf or fabrics for clothing. During the 3-day workshop you will be able to felt the painted silk on wool.
Most workshops are held in Hengelo, in the Dutch province of Gelderland, between the towns of Doetinchem and Vorden, but also at other locations. There are plenty of options for an overnight stay. This is possible from € 25.00 per night including breakfast, at walking distance from the workshop location. A workshop day starts at 09.30 hours and ends at 16.30 hours. Attention: In the Netherlands, there are two towns that go by the name of Hengelo. The workshops are given in Hengelo in the province of Gelderland (GLD)!
