Silk Velvet Course


Silk Velvet is the most beautiful fabric to print and paint on. During this course we will explore a fantastic range of colour using procion mx dyes, which when mixed together with soda ash and urea are colour fast after drying. This method is very suitable for making velvet scarves, bags and cushions, while larger scale pieces are suitable for fashion or home interior use. 

This course is for students of all abilities, no previous drawing skill is needed. There are lots of ways to design great one-off textile prints taking inspiration from natural and everyday objects. 

This course will provide students with test pieces, a length of fabric for a scarf or cushion, all dyes and equipment. Velvet is also available to buy. Please wear old clothes, dye stains. Lunch is provided with a vegetarian option, plus tea and coffee during the day. 

Longer courses are available by arrangement.
