Silk painting refers to the practice of applying paints or dyes to silk textiles.
Silk is a fine fiber made from the filaments of silkworm cocoons. When boiled and gently unwound, these pupal casings produce silk strands that can be combined into threads, which, in turn, can be used to make textiles.
Painting on silk is soothing and extraordinarily pleasing to watch. It is simply exquisite! This class is designed for beginners to learn the basics of silk painting.
You will have a choice of 2 different silk painting,
The method we will be using in this class is the classic “Serti” method which encapsulates the dye within a certain area of the design so the color stays in place . The crane particular design requires also the watercolor method for laying the dyes on the silk.
You will have the opportunity to either wear your art as a scarf or mount it on a 35 by 35 canvas. This will be shown and discussed at the beginning of the class.
