Wonderful workshops  at The Arty Silkworm...

Our creative days run from 10am until 2pm with a short break for lunch.

There is plenty of tea & coffee to sustain the creativity.

Our workshops are perfect for beginners and those with experience alike. The day is relaxed & structured and begins with an introduction to Silk, a demonstration of the way the beautiful professional dyes work, the methods of application and the process of fixing and finishing your wonderful creations.

Your tutor for the day will be Ruth Rutherford, a professional, enthusiastic multi skilled designer, who will inspire and guide you, to enable you to get the most from your day.


You will make practice samplers, experimenting with colour and technique. You will try various styles of Shibori, being amazed at your results. You will then create a beautiful, vibrant and  luxurious silk scarf to take home with you. 

The cost for the day is £49

and includes all basic materials.

Just bring yourself, your lunch and a pinny!

Please bring a pair of disposable gloves and a face covering,

to adhere to Government Guidelines

**There will be plenty of antibacterial sanitiser for your use**

These are the forthcoming 2020/21 Workshop Dates...

The themes are a wonderful starting point for your day, and your choice 

of colours will make your work completely unique.
