Silk Painting

Silk Painting

Details

This fun workshop is a process of playing creatively with brightly coloured dyes and specialist resist techniques. Bring designs for inspiration if you wish, these can be figurative or abstract or browse through some of our books for ideas. All levels are welcome from beginners to experienced artists wishing to try a new medium.

Donna Campbell is a textile artist and has an MA in Art and Design. She has worked for the last 25 years as a Community Artist working with individuals, families, groups and organisations both locally and internationally. She exhibits her own art with local Arts Collective Green Door Studios. Some of her community projects include work with Asian women in Action Groups in the U.K. designing silk painted appliqué panels, which were exhibited at The V&A Museum. Donna’s most recent communal textile piece was inspired by the Grayson Perry Tapestries. It shares a vibrant and confident use of colour and extensive detail to tell the stories of those it was created with, at the local homeless charity Manna House in Kendal. The Tapestries were created using a unique blend of Silk Painting, Appliqué & Embroidery.

The workshop will be at Cowshed Creative, based in a converted Cumbrian barn on our traditional Lakeland 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 relatively 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.
