Silk Painting - Scarves
Sat Jan 13

1:00 - 5:00 pm

Includes all supplies necessary to complete one finished painted scarf

Local Artist Barbara Ery is here to guide you on this colorful journey. Each participant will complete a finely painted silk scarf. Participants can wash and set their scarves at home or have them dry cleaned to ensure the permanence of their work. Details will be provided in class. We will be using fabric dyes for this class, so please dress in appropriate clothing.

Silk paintings are created on white silk. The dyes are painted onto the stretched surface of the silk using a paintbrush. The dyes flow into the fiber and bond with the proteins, becoming a part of the silk thread. This is different than oil, acrylic, or watercolor paints which sit on the surface of the support. These paintings are steam set – locking the dyes into the fiber and making the color of the painting reasonably lightfast and washable.-

Cost: $54/member, $60/nonmember

Modern quilts mean different things to different people. Modern quilts are utilitarian. They are art. They tell stories. They are graphic, improvisational, or minimalist. They break the rules. They make a statement. No matter the design aesthetic, modern quilts are creative expressions made with needle and thread, fabric, and time.

Experience the power of modern quilts firsthand in this exhibit of innovative and inspiring quilts that represent the best modern quilts and quilters of the past decade. In this exhibit, you will see the work of modern quilters, past and present, and learn the story of modern quilting from its earliest roots and influences to today.
