Around the state: Annual Autumn Simply Silk Workshop / October 13-14, 2012


This workshop is a great way for any creative soul to learn how to tap into that creative energy. No artistic background is necessary. The techniques you will learn give everyone the opportunity to be successful, from the novice to the experienced silk painter. Silk painting is a very “FUN and FREEING” art. With just the basic skills, the creative possibilities are endless. I will introduce you to the different techniques used to stretch the silk in preparation to paint, the various types of silk and different techniques used to apply dyes, gutta, presist, soy wax, etc. Then you will learn how to set the dyes using a dye set or steaming your items.

I will share “my” secrets to help you achieve beautiful results that are fun and stress free. Silk painting can be as simple and easy as just playing with color, or as complex as any fine art museum piece. So let’s start with simple and easy, create a beautiful piece of wearable art for yourself or to give as a gift. At the same time we will open the door to endless possibilities and have such fun along the way!
