Silk is one of the most unusual and exciting mediums to work on, it literally drinks the colour. Vivid, stunning and vibrant are just some of the words used to describe silk art.

In this six-part tutorial, you'll discover the wonders of silk painting and receive expert tuition from world-renowned silk artist, Kim Michelle Toft. With more than 35 years of experience, Kim’s work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally and her incredible silk artwork is also featured in her multi-award-winning environmental children’s books.

In this pre-recorded class, with step by step expert instruction and summaries at the end of each stage, you will transform a blank piece of white silk into a finished silk masterpiece in less than four hours!

You'll also receive six free templates to use for your designs on silk and unlimited email support from Kim if any queries should arise.

Kim’s lifelong love of the ocean and its inhabitants have served as an inspiration to create her stunning hand-painted silk artworks and now she wants to share her knowledge so you too can experience the incredible beauty and possibilities of silk!

I have been a full time silk artist for more than 33 years. My love of the ocean and the coastal habitats which support it are the driving force behind my silk paintings and award winning environmental picture books. I regularly run silk painting workshops from my gallery , Sea Silks Gallery, in Ballina , NSW. I also recently realised a digital tutorial , How To Paint On Silk For Beginners with an optional silk painting kit. I have a BG in teaching and still visit many schools throughout Australia as an author and illustrator. I believe we can all help heal the planet through nurturing nature , art and education.

I received the kit and it looks great. I haven’t had a chance yet to complete the project but look forward to doing so in the near future.
