SILK PAINTING CLASSES OFFERED:
- Saturday, March 4th, 2017 10a-2p – Paint a Silk Scarf – This is french resist painting – a design is applied to white silk with a substance
called gutta. When gutta dries it acts like a barrier, allowing you to paint and not have the colors bleed over each other. We will transfer a pattern onto the silk using gutta resist, then stretch the silk on a frame and paint it. Patterns are available or you can bring your drawing (size is 11″x60″). Drawings should be like a coloring book, with simple detail. I will provide the piece of silk prepared for painting, table space for working on the transfer, the frame to stretch the silk onto, and all of the paint, brushes, gutta, etc. The cost for this class is $75 and covers all supplies and lunch.
