Workshops offered in Richland, WA

Silk Painting example 1

I'm so excited!! My two workshops are officially posted on Allied Arts Gallery's website!!    They are being offered in conjunction with the new Fiber Fusion show which is opening the previous weekend.  (HOORAY!).  

I'm offering a beginning Silk Painting class (Serti method - which means "closing", "Wall" or Fence"...what it really refers to is using a resist to stop the dye from flowing into undesired areas of your painting), and I'm offering a workshop that will let participants play with various forms of Shibori-based resists as well as Ice Dyeing.   Shibori is a ancient Japanese set of binding techniques in which you bind your fabric in different ways to create a wide variety of patterns.  Tie-dyeing is technically a modern version of Shibori.

Both classes are being offered  on June 11th at the Allied Arts Gallery in Richland, WA.  Introduction to Silk Painting is being offered from 9am-12pm and the Resists/Ice-dyeing (Resisting Your Dyes with Ad Ice Kicker) workshop is being offered from 1pm-4pm.  

The prices are very affordable ($50 for the Silk Painting and $35 for the Ice Dyeing).   I hope to meet a bunch of new people, and I know we'll have a blast playing with natural fibers and dyes (and learning
Ice Dyeing example
of course)!
