These classes are run by our resident artist Sue Thomas at Toot Hill and are open to all. They are not Essex Silk Guild workshops but form a good introduction to various techniques and for beginners. Booking is still essential; the topics may change during the year due to availability so booking will ensure you are informed as soon as possible of any changes.
If you have never been before and need directions or have any questions,about the day please contact Sue (see bottom of page). Sue says:
"My workshop days are designed to provide you with the opportunity to explore and develop your skills and techniques. Although this is not an Course as such, and you may not be able to come every month, I have tried to design the days so that you have variety, opportunity and inspiration and you can build on each one, developing and improving your skills as a silk painter. They are usually held on the 3rd Saturday of the month. I will send out reminders to you, and the days or themes may be liable to change".
BOOKING is ESSENTIAL.
