Silk Play Days in the Studio

I am offering a very limited number of silk play days due to schedule and the availability to rent a space large enough for a play day. If you are interested signup is on a first come basis, with a limit of 4 people per session.

Dates are:

Saturday November 18th. 10a-4p

Sunday November 19th 1p-7p

I am available during the week as well – if you want a week day in November let me know what day might work.

Visit the Twist Drill building and create your own wearable piece of art in the form of a painted silk scarf. Make it a play day and bring a friend. We have a lot of fun, and i am there to help you with every step of the process. All play days are held at the Twist Drill Building (4700 lakeside avenue, cleveland, oh). We are renting a room for the class and can accommodate a max of 4 people per class. The cost is $ 79.00 which covers all supplies to paint 1 piece of silk measuring 11″x60″. You may draw your own design and bring it with you for the class, or use my patterns. I have a large number of drawings to choose from. Space is limited to 4 people and the silk play days fills up quickly.

The process:  the process is known as Serti method, or French Resist.  White blank silk is placed on top of the drawing.  Gutta resist is applied to the silk, tracing the pattern beneath.  The silk is placed on a frame, paint is applied.  Once painted the silk is removed from the frame and ironed to set color and fuse resist as a permanent part of the design.


The dates offered are:

Please note: it is possible to create a scarf in 6 hours, however the pattern should be more simple. That said, should you see to need more time we can set that up at another mutually agreeable time.
