This course is aimed at beginner and intermediate level silk painters. You will learn the basic techniques, explore various methods & processes of painting on silk including batik techniques to develop them into Paintings and Silk Scarves. We will be using steam-fixed dyes that become totally integrated with the fabric while still respecting the characteristic luminosity and texture of silk. Line drawings will be provided by the instructor but if you know to draw beautifully, she encourages you to bring your own images/line drawings.
Week 1&2 You will work on a sample painting to get familiar with the materials and learn the various techniques and texturing processes used on silk.
Week 3&4 Work on your second silk painting using all the techniques/processes learned in Week 1&2.
Week 5&6 You will work on your third piece of silk to develop it into an interesting silk scarf.
