Medieval Silk Paper

Saturday 12th March

It's always a pleasure to be in the company of Wyn Ingham but none more so than when she's teaching a workshop!  Her meticulous research of any subject is peppered with funny anecdotes of family life and holiday travel adventure which makes for thoroughly enjoyable day.

Wyn demonstrated how she makes silk paper using cocoon strippings.  She uses this as a background for painting and stitching, creating textured book covers and beautiful wall hangings.  The workshop was thoughtfully planned and Wyn had made up packs of pre-prepared paper so that people could make stitched books whilst their own paper was drying out.

A fantastic day!
