If there is something you would like to do with silk that is not listed, or if you have a group of friends who would like to try silk painting but for whom the dates shown are not convenient, or who are unable to travel, please give me a call. If you can find a suitable venue, whether in your own home or the local village hall, I am always willing ( diary permitting !!) to consider bringing everything needed to you instead of you coming to me.
