Introduce yourself to the exciting art of silk painting in this 3-day workshop held on the grounds of the Desert Museum. You will learn about professional silk dyes, how to mix, apply and set the dye using two age old techniques: The Arashi Shibori technique where you wrap the fabric on a pole to create a design, and the Serti method where you paint directly on stretched fabric to create more intricate paintings. The instructor will personalize both methods to meet the needs of each unique student, making the studio time fun and challenging for someone who desires instant gratification and for the person who prefers a more detailed project. This workshop will take you through the process of creating your idea and patterns to produce professional outcomes. Come join Holly who has taught silk painting for all ages and levels for over 20 years. All supplies included in the fee for 2 silk scarves. Additional scarf blanks will be available for purchase during the workshop. This class fills quickly. Mailed registrations cannot be guaranteed for this class.
