Clive Garner

Clive Garner has been involved with the arts throughout his life. As a boy he took part in amateur dramatics and in his teens he developed an interest in the visual arts. During teacher training in the 70s he was able to take both Art and Drama and in 1982 he completed a BEd degree in Art. He went on to try his hand at water colour, jewellery making and silversmithing before a chance discovery in 1995 led him to experiment with silk painting. He joined the Guild of Silk Painters where he met the renowned silk artist and tutor, Mary Day. Under Mary's guidance, Clive gained a City and Guilds Silk Painting qualification in 2007 and now offers demonstrations of silk painting as well as workshops and talks.
