New Silk Class starts Wed Oct 22




Hi Silk Dye Painting Enthusiasts,

Silk Dye Painting Class will start October 22 for 5 weeks on Wednesdays from 10:30 am - 1:30 pm at the SEFAA Center, right off of I-75 Northside Drive Exit for $150.

These classes will be focused on using resist lines and creating textures on silk using acid dyes. We will be using Resistad, a water based resist from New Zealand, salt, alcohol, water, and dilutant. You can either do pre-hemmed scarf blanks or plain yardage pieces. 

We will not be using wax resist, screen techniques, discharging, or shibori methods. These need a workshop day or two of their own and those workshops will be scheduled at other times.

If you would like to take this 5 week class, please email me at hellenne@live.com so I can put you down on the list, and send  a check  for $150 to:

Hellenne Vermillion
195 14th Street NE
Unit 410
Atlanta, GA 30309

You will need to buy your own supplies and here is the link for the list. Please order the Resistad asap because it is mailed from New Zealand. Dharma Trading also takes about a week for delivery. If you do not have your supplies on the first day of class, I will have some you can "borrow."

Please note: the SEFAA Center is in the Senior Center Building and they will be undergoing a massive renovation at some time in the near future. We may have to reschedule some classes around the renovation, except we have no clue when this is going to happen. I am hoping you can be flexible if this happens. Thank you,
Hellenne
