Craft Demonstrations - Aberlour
Speyside Artisans will be exhibiting at the Scout Hall in Aberlour on Thursday, Friday and Saturdays for the next two weekends (29th - 31st July and 5th - 7th August). Thursday opens 12pm-7pm and Friday and Saturdays are 10am-4pm.
Not only can be buy the wonderful arts and crafts at the Hall, but there are demonstrations taking place too.
Lesley has been demonstrating the art of silk painting (as shown in the photos). She applied silk paint to the fabric (above) and then added some salt to draw out the paint:
As you can see from these photos, the salt draws in the paint and creates trails in the colours - it really is a fascinating process to watch.
Please pop along - you can even have a tasty cake and cup of tea.
