Silk Dye Painting Class 2 1/2 hour sessions
6 Sessions 10:30am-1:00pm $250
Supplies not included
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 cover abstract designs, motif placements, colored resist lines, steam setting, mixing colors, salt and water textures, a black dye only challenge, and more.
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.
You will need to buy your own supplies and here is the link for the list.

Dharma Trading 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 use for a fee.
Another option is to purchase a modified version of the supply list from me. Please email me at email@example.com and I will send you what will be on the list and the cost.
