I have two workshops coming up, in the next two months, for batik and silk painting.
Batik – painting with wax Two day course - September 29th – 30th at the wonderful venue of
Nature in Art Museum and Art Gallery in Gloucestershire. Click on the link to go to their website.
Suitable for Beginners & Improvers
Learning to paint with wax and colour is great fun and even the most nervous beginner can
produce lovely designs and images within a very short space of time. Over the two days, after
getting familiar with the medium and equipment, we will be producing beautiful images that can
be hung on the wall or made into cushion covers etc from projects that I set or your own ideas.
Details and booking for this workshop/course can be found on their website; look under the
education tab on their home page and select adult classes from the drop down menu. A full
list of the courses for the year is displayed, simply click on my name, which brings up a pdf file
that has all the details for my course that you can either open or download to view. Alternatively
please call the museum on 01452 733942 or 731422 or ask when you next visit. I believe there
are a few spaces available so please do enquire at the museum if you are interested.
Nature in Art runs approximately 30 classes a year in a variety of subjects and cater to all levels
from beginners to advanced. Most courses are run by artists who have work in the Museum’s
collection and/or have been on their artist in residence programme. The courses are held in
their purpose built education centre and class sizes are kept between 6-12 people to ensure
you receive individual attention from the tutor whilst enjoying a sense of team spirit.
