SP 17 Painting Botanicals on Silk: A two-day class

This event is no longer on sale.

Saturday June 3

10:00 AM  –  4:00 PM

If you have always wanted to learn how to paint on silk or have taken an introductory workshop, this class is the next step.  By using a technique that slows the absorption of dye into silk and allows you to paint without using a resist, Kathy will show you how to paint flowers and leaves onto silk. Students will trace a design onto silk, choose and mix a color palette, and paint the dye on the silk and learn how to set the dye. At the end of the two days, you will have at least one completed scarf to take home. Students will need to wear clothing that can get stained or bring a waterproof smock or apron. You may want to bring non-latex gloves to protect hands. All other materials will be supplied.
