Silk paintings are created on white silk, the dyes are painted onto the stretched surface of the silk using a paintbrush. The dye flows into the fiber, bond with the proteins and become part of the threads. This painting is different from acrylic, oil or even watercolors that all sit on the surface. These paintings are steamed- set locking the dyes into the fibers and making.

Prior to the workshop, the instructor will prepare the chosen outline of your choice. The choices are sun, moon,cat, dog, lily, iris, tree, cross, abstract lines, fish, basketball, football, baseball, pumpkin. Please list your choice in the space below as you register.
