Did you know that silk is one of the oldest and most durable fabrics? It is bug-proof, heat proof, colorfast and remains soft and luxurious. It takes dye beautifully and due to its qualities of transparency and shimmer, amazing artwork is the result. Touching a paintbrush filled with vibrant color to a piece of stretched silk and watching the colors flow is indeed like magic. Learning how to manipulate and blend the colors is even more rewarding as you create depth and value within your shapes. You need no painting or drawing experience to be successful with your very first project!
In our time together you will learn the Serti method of using gutta to create shapes and designs, learn to create texture, and learn some new and unusual techniques to color your silk even without traditional dyes. Oh what fun we will have! You will have the opportunity to complete at least 4 projects.
