In this one day class we will be painting on a silk scarf and do another 16" X 20" silk batik. We will be using dyes and resists and melted beeswax. I will explain the whole process and where to get materials to continue at home. The dyes need to be steam set after class which I will do here at the studio and deliver or mail the artwork to you the next day, or I can show you how to do the steam setting at home.
I am an artist with international collectors, both corporate and private, and have owned several galleries and studios in both the USA and South Africa for the last 50 years. I teach both adults and children in the fiber arts, and all arts, including woven tapestry, children's theater and set design. I am presently giving workshops and private lessons in my studio, which is attached to my house, where I rent out Airbnb rooms as well. I also travel to give workshops to both adults and children in woven tapestry, silk painting, batik, shibori, and other fiber art and basic art techniques.
A light lunch will be provided. Please let me know of any special dietary needs.
All materials, silks and dyes, etc. will be supplied, as well as print- outs describing the materials and techniques.
We will conduct our workshop in my artist studio, which is located on the property connected to the house.
