Visit our studio at the Twist Drill and create your own wearable piece of art in the form of a hand painted silk scarf. All Silk Play Days are held in our building located at 4700 Lakeside Ave in Cleveland, Ohio. Parking is located in the secure lot across the street from the building. The studio space can accommodate up to 4 people per play day.
The cost is $79.00 per person which includes all of the supplies to design and paint one scarf and 1 piece of silk measuring 11"x60".
You may bring your own drawing (please keep the design to simple coloring book lines) or use one of my patterns. Space is limited and the play days fill up quickly.
a quick note: the play day will take the full time to create and complete your piece of silk. I am there to assist with any issues or help needed.
The studio will furnish lunch of either soup or a big salad as well as coffee/tea and water. You are welcome to bring snacks if you wish. If you wish something different to drink please bring what you like. Please let me know if you have any food allergies.
You are strongly encouraged to wear old clothing, and comfortable shoes. Dress in layers. sometimes the studio is very cool, and at other times the radiators are piping hot.
