Experimental Painted Fashion

Create original patterns and marks at our workshop in South Lakes


A great way to add a contemporary twist to solid and printed fabrics. Update your wardrobe with a chlorine bleach technique and experiment with a variety of patterns and mark making to create original designs. Kay will guide you in this fun and playful session, providing lots of ideas and methods with which to experiment.

How to book and what to bring - check out our website.

Kay Sandham Banks is an old pupil of the Lakes School, Windermere, who after going to Carlisle Art college & Trent Poly, set off for a practice job interview and came back 27 years later! Kay is exuberant in her enthusiasm for creative work and is very happy to share her skills. She has extensive experience teaching Art and Design, Photography and Design Technology to Secondary and Primary pupils in Tower Hamlets, Kennington and Wandsworth as well as teaching Adults for Camberwell Probation Service. Kay recently completed a PGCTA in Therapeutic Arts.

The workshop will be at Cowshed Creative, based in a traditional converted Lakeland barn at Browfoot Farm. The art studio is a stunning open plan space with plenty of room to wander outside and take inspiration from the amazing Lakeland landscape and environment of the peaceful Kentmere valley. Make it a special break and stay in one of our luxury camping pods on the farm.

All our tutors are carefully selected professionals and experts with extensive teaching experience. Whilst this is a new venture, George, who has set up Cowshed Creative, has many years of experience programming and running creative courses at the Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal and for Cumbria Adult Education.
