Silk Scarf Workshop... The Art of Devoré

Spend the day in beautiful York creating a stunning silk scarf to take home.

Get creative in our Art of Devoré workshops discovering printing techniques, experimenting on silk samples and hand-printing your very own silk scarf, all under our guidance

Our step-by-step introduction to devoré (a burnout technique of creating ‘cut work’ in fabric) is suitable for all levels of experience, and is the perfect opportunity to get creative, have fun and learn a new skill. Each workshop includes a light lunch, and participants will take home four silk samples alongside their unique, hand-dyed silk scarf in a colour of their choice.

Cost for full day: £120 (including lunch)

We can also cater for parties and groups- it is a perfect event for hen dos, team building or a special birthday! Please note our workshops are not suitable if you are pregnant or under 16.
