Hand painting on silk is an ancient art with a rich history from India, China, Japan and France. The process of silk painting begins with stretching silk on a frame, sketching or transferring the design onto the silk, mixing dye colors, and painting with a brush. This is exactly what we will do in the class together.
Each workshop participant will create (and take home) their own painting on a 22” square hemmed silk that can be worn as a scarf or displayed as a wall hanging.
All supplies will be provided. All you need to bring is the inspiration and a readiness to create beauty!
No experience necessary; all levels welcome.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
