In this half day workshop artist Mary-Ann will show you how to create a beautiful butterfly with silk wings.
Although the end result often looks like it could be real, your butterfly needn’t be realistic. In fact you will be positively encouraged to explore your own imagination for colour schemes as you learn how to paint butterfly wings on pre-treated silk.
Mary-Ann will then lead you in the methods she uses to create the butterfly’s body, complete with antenna and tiny eyes. You will be given the option to add a brooch pin to your finished butterfly or it can be used as a decoration.
You will will be offered a range of different designs and size wing patterns to choose from, so the finished size of your butterfly will vary.
Although no previous experience is required it is recommended that you are used to being creative and comfortable with working in detail particularly with a paint brush and with needle and thread.
All tools and materials will be provided but you may like to bring along your own scissors and sewing kit.
