SILK PAPERS... OR IS IT FABRIC?

 
 

INSTRUCTOR: LIZ KETTLE
WEDNESDAY | NOVEMBER 11 | 6 PM TO 8:30 PM | $45
CLOSED

Nothing compares to the lustrous color and feel of silk. In this class, we will create silk paper that is also a fabric! We use luscious hand dyed silk hankies, roving and carrier rods.  A wet laminating process allows us to layer fibers to create beautiful ethereal fabrics for embellishment as well as thicker fabric suitable for substrates and vessels. You will make 4-6 sheets of delicious silk fabric/paper for your fabric and mixed media art, including the option of making your own small bowl. Use these silk papers in collage, as embellishment, journal covers and vessels. 

MATERIALS
All materials included with a $25 materials fee payable to the instructor.
