Silk Painting

Heather is an established artist, and has worked from her Studio in Whiting Bay for almost 18 years.
 Living on Arran, the local landscape is the main inspiration for her work.

Having worked in many different mediums over the years, painting on silk gives her the desired vibrant colours to express her interpretation of the land and seascapes.

Whether it’s a scarf, cushion cover or a landscape painting, this workshop will begin with the basics of stretching the silk, use of gutta and design. There are many techniques to explore, with different effects to enhance and make work more interesting and exciting.
 The dyes used will be iron fix and washable.
