Let's paint a scarf! We'll meet in my arts studio in midtown Tucson, where I'll teach you how to hand-paint a vibrant scarf, making textures with salt and water. We'll mix colors, from dazzling violet to dreamy teal, and watch them flow effortlessly across the fabric. You'll leave your scarf with me to be steam set, and then pick it up later in the day or request to have it mailed (if within the U.S.). Some participants may have time to paint 2 scarves.
I own my own arts business, Raebird Creations, and have been making art for 24 years, silk painting for 9 years. My scarves, which feature wildlife and landscapes, are sold online and in local fairs/markets. I am also a teacher at The Drawing Studio in Tucson, where I have offered classes in painting and drawing since 2017. I offer workshops from my own studio in silk painting with resist and in painting free form without resist (resist makes lines that stop the flow of dye and give you the option to add an image to your piece....the end result looks like stained glass!) Vibrant dyes that flow effortlessly across the fabric make this a captivating medium. Participants in my workshops create their own unique and colorful scarves to wear. You can see some of my work at raebirdcreations.com
All supplies needed for the project are provided. This include dye, fabric, and more.
Raebird Creations Art Studio is my workplace. It is home to many of my original art pieces, mostly silk paintings adhered to canvas, which are displayed in the main room. We'll be painting in the studio room, a light-filled, spacious, creative workshop.
18歳以上の方5名まで参加できます。 Guests should be comfortable around a dog. Our dog is mellow and gentle, she'll likely be in the room while we paint.
You'll definitely need the entire class time, so plan to arrive on time and stay the whole session. Remember I'll be steam setting your scarves, so you can arrange to pick them up later in the day or request to have them mailed (if you're within the U.S.)
