This class will be an introduction to the art of painting on silk. In four hours you will learn the basic steps of applying dye to silk, create a design, and be inspired! The dyes used in this class are nontoxic liquid dyes, made by a French company who pioneered the chemical dye industry. The colors are vibrant and a pleasure to use, but they do require steaming to set the dyes and make them colorfast. At the end of the class Phil will take them home, steam them and you can pick them up at the Botanic Gardens when they are done.
Please come dressed in ‘creative clothing’, an apron if you wish, and bring a notebook. Gloves and brushes will be provided.
