Its coming – fall is around the corner, but before it ends we are excited to say we will be spending the last weekend of summer at Tremont Art and Culture Festival… Tremont has a special place in our heart because it was the first art festival we were involved in, and we were there from the very first one in 1999 to today. The neighborhood of Tremont has changed alot, and so has the art fair. But it is always a nice weekend in Lincoln park with great entertainment and good food. We hope you join us Saturday Sept 18th from Noon-7p and Sunday Sept 19th from Noon-5p.
We have a new soap, known as “Cuz You Stink” which features persimmon. Persimmon is a natural ingredient that is said to remove the musty gusty body smells. We learned about persimmon and the use of this extract in soap from a friend that visited Japan, and came home with two bars of soap. She gave a bar of her Japanese soap to her elderly parents, and noticed that as they used it they did not have that usual older person smell. She asked us to research it, and finally the formula came together. We have tried it out in our shower and We think you will too!
Silk Play Days are back in our studio, and i am working on a schedule. Its a full day of fun, creating your own wearable art silk scarf. The kit includes a piece of silk measuring 11″x60″, and all of the supplies (resist gutta, paint, etc) to complete a scarf. I also offer a selection of patterns to follow, or you may bring your own design. Designs should be like coloring book – outlines, minimal details and measure 11″x60″ . We start by drawing the resist lines via tracing onto the silk. Then the silk is stretched on a frame, and painted. At the end of the day you will be able to wear it home after i iron the piece to set the color and resist. Because it is a full day i will provide lunch, and have coffee, tea and water available. check back very soon for the schedule.
