On occasion, I teach monographic workshops, either in my own workshop or in other centres in Spain or abroad. In these sessions, I teach a specific technique. Below are some examples:

  • One of the silk painting techniques, to create a lovely scarf.Silk Painting and FeltingCourses and Workshops
  • Nuno felting on silk, to create a warm felted scarf.
  • Wet felting to make a handbag, to which we can add little stones or crystals.
  • Covering natural olive oil soaps with a layer of colourful merino wool, to create a felted soap.

At the end of the session, participants take home the scarves, handbags, felted soaps or other items they have created.

I also teach intensive courses or private classes to individuals or small groups. I can teach any of the above techniques of hand-painted silk or felt by agreement.

There is nothing more rewarding than spending a good while unleashing your creativity, designing and creating exclusive, original items with your own hands to use them yourself or to make a special gift.

With the technique or techniques you will learn, you will be able to create your own hand-painted silk scarves, foulards, nuno felt scarves, handbags and other fashion accessories or decorative items, felted soaps

If you are interested in learning or practising these techniques, get in touch with me and I’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have.
