Natalie Malarowski is a professional artist and founder of Natalie's Silk Art. You can't imagine your feelings of excitement and joy when the paint is flowing on the fabric and under your direction takes a form of a beautiful art. Colourful vibrant colours combined with a slightly see through, gentle canvas of silk. Students are given the opportunity to explore the many styles and varieties of resist techniques as a Cold Batik, Hot Batik and Free painting. For many students, it is their first-time painting and it can be a bit daunting when committing the first brush strokes to the naked silk but Natalie gently gives them confidence, encouraging them to be brave and achieve their own style.
Natalie runs beginner classes and more advanced classes at various times during the year. For more information visit Natalie's silk art website or e-mail: nataliemalarowski@gmail.com.
