Friday Night Out Silk Painting with Wine and Cheese

Relax after a busy week and learn to paint on silk with dyes while enjoying wine and cheese. Create a silk painting on a small square stretcher frame and learn three popular silk painting approaches: resist (like batik), watercolor method, and working with salt and alcohol on silk (which creates beautiful starbursts and dynamic patterns). Experienced and novice silk painters can practice skills and make new friends. All supplies are included in the cost for the evening.
