Silk Painting in action by one of our successful students.
We have an exciting, fun filled summer planned for all of you. Get ready for lots of fun classes fit for the whole family. We’re really looking forward to our silk dye classes that we teach only a couple of times each month. Get your hands dirty, and get the chance to experiment and play with color.
Learn how to dye and paint silk scarves, and art that goes back centuries to the 2nd century AD. Hailing from ancient China and India, silk painting has proven to be wearable art that has stood the test of time. Silk is a classic medium that oozes elegance and class. These projects work perfectly in any setting, try adorning your clothing, bags, hair, home or anything else you can imagine.
We offer a ONE DAY Painting with Dyes Class as well as a Kid’s Learn To Paint Fabric Class. We have a variety of dates available which you can check out on our class calendar. This is the perfect summer project! On nice days we try to teach this class outside, plein air silk painting is a treat! Learn how to gather inspiration from the world around you and translate it onto a painted textile surface. Use a variety of techniques to achieve the exact look that you desire. There’s a world of possibility! You’ll get help every step of the way, from planning your design, to dye application, and with setting and aftercare instruction. We give you the guidance you need for success, and the freedom for experimentation, resulting in a gorgeous one-of-a-kind silk scarf made for you. We’ll make sure you feel confident in your new craft. Join the fun, and unleash your creativity!
Hope to see you there!
