This is an exciting and stimulating workshop to explore design, color and painting on silk. Colors on silk are breath-taking. Design techniques are easy to apply and painting florals are perfect for this art form. Classes are taught in an open and relaxed manner and geared for anyone interested in exploring silk painting. By the end of this two-day workshop you will have three beautiful new scarves to take home. Some supplies needed.
