Not only did long-time IAA member Roberta Ferguson present a demonstration on silk painting at the April 24 members meeting, she will also hold two one day silk painting workshops on May 16 & 17 (9 am – 4 pm on either day).
Roberta paints silk using silk paints, not dyes. She warns that the luminosity of the silk fabric and the brilliance of the colors are addicting! Be sure to attend the free demonstration in April, then come practice this enchanting art in one of the May workshops.
She will show workshop attendees different techniques that can be used, such as painting wet on wet, wet on dry, gutta (resist), salt and pens. Each person will then paint a scarf. Supplies are included in the workshop fee of $55 ($50 for IAA members).
