During this series of classes you will introduced to this gentle and relaxing art and you will make your own silk scarf which you will be able to take home and wear with pride. Silk painting is the art of applying special dye to silks. The process begins with a luxurious base of precious, pure white, China silk which has a design embossed onto it. This fabric is stretched tightly on a frame. The magic of the process comes from the images and combinations that emerge within the embossed design boundaries. The purity and the intensity of color that emerges during the painting process is amazing, all items are steamed for many hours, and this sets the dye and increases the intensity of the color even more. Steaming also makes the painting very permanent and durable and all of the silk pieces produced can be washed or dry cleaned. No experience is necessary and all materials are included.
