Pictures included of latest silk painting classes. Sometimes we use silk paints which dont have to be steamed, sometimes we use resist for stained glass technique. Some people want to learn the steaming technique. Some are just experimenting and having fun, others are learning for a specific project they have in mind, creating silk works to give or sell to others. Silk is a joy whether for fun or a future including an income stream from art.
Call to schedule your own Silk Painting Experience. B13 7B5 0I29 even if meetup is saying RSVP's are closed. The app doesn't always work correctly.
I offer silk painting classes. The great thing is that the dyes are so beautiful on the silk , that just brushing them on randomly creates something beautiful , and using the resist lines makes the painting more fun. You can see the lines and the dyes on the image below - it is a painting of a poppy done by a student who had not painted on silk before.
Your investment of $75.00 includes instruction, the 100% silk, dyes, and resists. Your piece will turn out beautifully - I use fibre-reactive steam set dyes, which do not sit on top of the silk, like silk paints do - the dyes are bonded into the silk by steaming for one hour in a steamer, then the silk is washed, and ironed. This is the real thing. Your work will be beautiful, lustrous, and silky.
I have been painting on Silk for quarter of a century !!!! I have work at Baisden Gallery, Tampa ( next to Mise en Place restaurant) and at Clay'nPaper Gallery in Dunedin ( ClayPaper.com).Now I am offering to teach this beautiful art to others.
This class is great for anyone who wants to try something new. It is fun for mothers daughters, aunts nieces, groups of friends. There is a grand atmosphere of conviviality created if you choose to bring wine and nibbles, I have a pot of coffee or tea available..
If you want to learn the full process of silk painting and fixing the dyes, you can take a series of classes @$15 an hour after the introductory class.
