Thursday, October 19th | 5:30PM-7:30PM | Silk Scarf Painting

Create a beautiful silk scarf through the use of gutta resist and silk dyes to create flowing watercoloresque patterns and imagery. In this class, you learn about the serti method and create your own 21” square silk scarf by tracing patterns with gutta, selecting a color palette, and painting with silk dyes. Tracing patterns are provided, or you are welcome to free-hand your patterns. This class is fun and relaxing, and you will come away with a lovely new silk scarf!

Please note: No previous experience with drawing or painting is required.

This class is appropriate for ages 16+.

This class will take place at Ara Studio & Gallery, located at 18 Harvard Street, Rochester, NY 14607.
