Instructor: Tomoko Murakami
One of the most exciting aspects of painting silk is the opportunity to create strikingly vivid textures and color. This workshop introduces basic techniques for painting on silk – the watercolor technique (painting with dyes) and the French serti technique (drawing a design with water-based resist called gutta). Participants will create a scarf or tapestry by painting, printing, spraying or drawing on silk. The brilliant, translucent colors merge to become an integral part of the soft fabric with stunning results! All levels are welcome.
