Learn the art of Devoré with Meiji Designs…

Let us guide you through the art of devoré in the beautiful city of York, North Yorkshire.

At our workshops you will get creative learning the art of devoré and leave the day with an array of samples and a ready to wear silk scarf in your choice of colour.

A typical day at a Meiji Designs workshop includes an introduction to devoré, an opportunity to try out different techniques on silk samples, and then adding your favourite techniques on to a finished scarf, all of which you will take home with you at the end of the day. You will have the support and guidance from co-founders Ruth and Natalie, and a light lunch is provided.

If you are interested in booking a workshop for a party or hen do, please email us to enquire.
