What you'll do

In our class, you will be an artist for 4 hours, having fun and relaxing with a brush in your hand.
The workshop will guide you through the basic stages of a silk painting. During our four hours, you'll be able to choose to draw a figure of yourself, your family member, or your loved one directly on the silk.
We hope the combination of watercolor and silk will make your mind relaxing and you will experience healing through the slow analog, tactile sensibility of everyday life.

Hi, We're Ha, Hieu and Yen.
Graduated from the Ho Chi Minh city University of Fine Arts, we've had the chance to explore many forms of Vietnamese traditional arts, one of which is silk painting. Through this workshop, we would like to share our passion of silk painting.
Silk painting is the traditional painting of Vietnam and it's also a part of Vietnamese modern painting.
We hope you'll feel the sense of the traditional silk painting and gain a better understanding about Vietnamese art.

Where you'll be

The workshop will take place at the house which is near the river. After class, I think you can walk around, find something interesting and relax.

Lovely artists sharing their culture through their art. This silk painting technique is great for beginners, it’s very meditative. They are flexible in teaching you at your level. Cute little studio. I am hoping they grow and continue teaching this technique. What a great way to support Vietnamese artists!

I had so much fun here and felt really comfortable. I had zero experience working with watercolours but now I feel as though I left with some new skill I can work on back home. Would highly recommend this if you enjoy being creative :)

It’s a wonderful and interesting experience with lots of fun, all 3 teachers are very nice and patient, they print out the pictures we want to draw in advance, and guide us finish our painting step by step, they also share a lot of techniques for silk painting like how to mix colors, how to make the gradient effect, and how to work on the 3D contrast etc.
