Silk Paper Workshop

Yesterday we had a fun day making silk paper, at School House Arts. We used silk cocoon strippings to make the paper which was then bonded onto fabric, painted and sealed with acrylic wax. The ladies are then going to use the fabric to make jewellery, book covers, or bags. As you can see from the photographs everyone worked really hard, hardly stopping for refreshments. It was a good job Debs was on hand to keep us well supplied with tea, coffee and biscuits.

Here are some pictures of the fabric and some of the things the ladies have started to make.

We are looking forward to seeing the finished work.

Sharne is taking our next workshop on May 16th when she will be showing us how to make a travel journal.
This will be followed by a Dabble Day on June 25th when we will be covering different aspects of felting and needle felting.
On July 11th we are lucky to be having Pauline Verinder with us. She is going to take a workshop called "Boogie with Books" which is sure to be a fun day.
