Silk Painting Starter Kit b...Jane Cameron
I first took up silk painting at the 2001 Knitting and Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace, when the Fabric Colour Workshop were doing taster sessions. I went with curiosity, and came home with a large frame, some silk, a brush and a box of little bottles of paint!
Since then, I have completed my City and Guilds qualification in creative textiles (silk painting), and the "Access to Art & Design" Diploma at the University for Creative Arts in Farnham. I enjoy teaching silk painting and helping each student to achieve their potential.
I have written tutorials on aspects of silk painting for Crafts Beautiful Magazine and Creative Crafting Magazine, and contributed three projects to the book "Craft", which was published by Dorling Kindersley. I appeared (briefly!) on Paul Martin's Handmade Revolution (BBC2) and was interviewed by the Victoria & Albert Museum as part of a project on traditional crafts.
I am pleased to have been able to partner with Silkcraft.co.uk to develop my fabulous Silk Painting Starter Kit.
I have been working in ceramics since the late 1990s, and in fused glass since 2009. I have my own home studio. I have been on a number of courses at Glasszoo, UCA Farnham, Warm Glass, The Glass Hub, and with Surrey Adult Education. I have also attended workshops at the International Festival of Glass. I have been featured in the Glass Beadmakers UK Magazine and Journal.
I am a member, and previous Vice Chairman, of the Guild of Silk Painters, and have had a number of articles, reviews and tutorials published in their Journal.
