Enjoy a creative art workshop with a South Asian flavour! In this small-group interactive workshop, you will be shown how to use watercolour techniques to apply your chosen colours and design to a traditional silk scarf, using eco-friendly dyes.
Please note that your scarf will need 24 hours to dry and you will need to arrange collection the following day.
Note: this is a free workshop, but if you are able to make a donation to Festival funds, please choose one of the donation buttons when booking.
