The Essex Guild attends some fairs and festivals during the year, at which you can sometimes have a try at silk painting, and admire or even buy examples of our work.
This year we plan to attend the following events with works or a stand where you can meet some of our members, see them working and purchase their work as scarves and other gifts, or (for some events only) even have a go at silk painting!
