I will offer an individual silk painting class at your conveniece at my studio . You decide how long you want to work together. I charge $45 per hour and this price includes all the dyes, silk and resist. We will practice social distancing, wear masks and keep an air vent running, circulating air.
You'll create silk paintings on a small square stretcher frame or sun-catcher 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).
All materials for adult classes are included in the cost of workshops and classes. Scroll down for class descriptions.

You don’t need to spend a lot of time mastering traditional silk painting techniques to make a beautiful hand-painted silk scarf. In this workshop, using steam-set dyes, paint two hand-painted scarves with dyes. Sprinkle salt and drop alcohol to the wet dyes and watch them create beautiful, dynamic starburst effects. Learn how to mix colors, and discuss methods for fixing dyes and steam- or heat-setting your creations, and practice other techniques for painting on silk. Take home a packet of helpful materials to assist your future silk painting exploration. The instructor will provide the silk and dyes.
