Essex Guild of Silk Painters
Essex Guild of Silk Painters


Welcome to the Essex branch of the National Guild of Silk Painters! We are a group of people of differing backgrounds and expertise who aim to inspire each other and explore aspects of silk painting, dyeing and textile art together. 


Demonstrations, workshops and studio days encourage individual members to exchange ideas and try new techniques. From beginner to expert there is space for all to develop their own style at their own pace.

Members' workshops are usually held 1 Saturday a month (see Branch Events), plus some members also run other workshops which are open to the public (see Tutored Classes). Enquiries from beginners are welcome. To find us or get in touch please see the Contact Us page.


The Guild is a not for profit organisation run by and for its members. We are affiliated to the National Guild of Silk Painters. You can find out more about the National Guild here.
