Over the course of the weekend students will learn the basics of silk painting, the tools and materials used, and various techniques for creating designs on the surface of the cloth. We’ll also discuss finishing techniques, such as steaming and washing, to set the dyes and make the painting permanent. You’ll leave the class with a beautiful silk painting that you can display or wear as a one of a kind work of art.
