Hand Painted Silk - TBA
Explore the art of Hand Painted Silk while making two colorful scarfs to keep for yourself or give as gifts. In this workshop, students will learn how to apply fiber reactive dyes to silk with a paintbrush. The process is similar to watercolor. Creative inspiration and expression will be strongly encouraged while using basic design principles. Students will learn the principles of color and techniques to rework the color on their scarfs.
Students are strongly encouraged to wear clothes and shoes to the class that they don't mind getting permanent dyes on. Please, bring rubber gloves to protect your skin and plastic garbage bags to carry your projects home safely in your car.
