Silk Scarf Workshop

Learn the art of Devoré with Meiji Designs…

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 the guidance of Meiji Designs co-founders Natalie and Ruth.

“Thank you so much for a brilliant day. Surprised myself with the end result. A beautiful scarf to treasure and wear with pride.” Rachel

Our step-by-step introduction to devoré (a 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.

Cost for full day: £120 (including lunch)
