Silk Painting for children at National Trust house ‘Newark Park’, Gloucestershire


On Sunday 26th June I will be leading two silk painting classes at the National Trust’s delightful and curious setting, Newark Park, Ozleworth, Gloucestershire. All materials will be supplied on the day and the class will guide you through the fun of designing an image on silk that may be inspired by the wonderful objects on display at Newark Park or simply an idea that you hold.

Here are some examples or work made by children at previous workshops…
