Paint a leaf print silk scarf while learning various silk painting techniques. You will paint 12"" x 12"" sample pieces and go home with a hand-painted silk scarf. In this class you will learn silk painting techniques using salt and alcohol, stamping with gutta and how resists work on silk. Then you will go on to paint a 11 x 60-inch silk scarf using the techniques you learned. Silk painting produces beautiful results; no previous art background necessary! For experienced artists, this is an exciting new medium to explore which allows creative freedom. Instruction on how to steam set dyes will also be given and a resource material list on types of dyes and where to purchase them.

Wear appropriate clothes the silk dyes stain. Bring watercolor brushes, a sponge brush, a large water jar and protective gloves. All other supplies will be provided including the silk, silk scarf and dyes and gutta. A $ 20 material fee payable to instructor at the start of class.
