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 have the option of making a small bowl. The first evening, you will make 4-6 sheets of delicious silk fabric/paper for your fabric and mixed media art. These silk papers can be used in collage, as embellishment, journal covers and vessels.
The second evening we will explore modern hand stitching and a bit of beading to make a luscious journal cover.

Supply fee of $35 payable to insructor at beginning of class  includes all materials.
