Welcome to the Essex branch. We aim to inspire each other and explore aspects of silk painting, dyeing and textile art together.

Demonstrations, workshops and studio days encourage individual members to exchange ideas and try new techniques. From beginner to expert there is space for all to develop their own style at their own pace.

Members days are usually held 1 Saturday a month (see Branch Events). Enquiries from beginners are welcome.

We will be both selling our work and running our have-a-go area at the inspirational RHS Hyde Hall event next month. Come along to see us and many other beautiful works. If you can't make this one, see more dates for later in the year on the "see us at" page.
