Donna Fox Summer Silk Painting Workshops
We’re pleased to welcome Donna Fox as artist-in-residence at Archway Learning Trust. Donna is running workshops throughout the summer holiday to produce colourful silk banners for every academy in our Trust.
Students attending the workshops will learn about the batik hot-waxing technique, silk painting, dye mixing, steaming, and fixing treatments. They will also learn about how Murshidabad silk is made in India and how it supports the families who rely on this industry.
All 11 silk banners will exhibited at Derby Arena for our Festival of Learning on Monday 3rd October.
