Artists in China painted on silk years before they were painting on paper. Russian nobility brought painting on silk to Western Europe after the revolution. 

Modern silk painters love the intense colors that can be achieved on the lovely silk surface.

Bring a lunch, we will break for an hour to let your silk dry.

This includes silk, dyes, use of resist and frame.  If you have a 7” embroidery hoop, please bring it. Class limited to 8 students (4 is the minimum). You will complete an approximately 12 X 16" painting in class. Bring a simple line drawing if you have a subject you like.
