My name is Kate Elwell and I’ve been an artist for over 35 years. I paint on jute hessian bags, framed panels depicting flora and fauna and do decorative painting on a variety of objects. My work is mostly through commissions and I also sell at craft fairs and take workshops teaching how to paint on jute bags.
At my workshop people will learn to paint on a lined jute hessian bag then add some glitter and bling. It will be pre-prepared with the image ready for painting. All materials required will be provided – including the bag, and they will take the completed bag home.
Please note that no one needs to know how to paint to do this workshop.
