I have the pleasure to lead a workshop
Saturday June 25th. 2011
Hyatt's All Things Creative
910 Main St.
Buffalo, NY .
The students gathered at 11:00 am to learn the basics of how to work with the Jacquard Silk Painting Kit available at the Hyatt's Stores.
Each student was asked to create numerous sketches developed from sections of these works or something that speaks to them so they were ready to get started as soon as they arrived.
First I demonstrated numerous ways to attach the silk to a variety of framing devices.
Soon the students were enjoying seeing their designs come to life in living color.
While they painted with silk dyes I demonstrated various textural effects they could achieve by adding water, salts or rubbing alcohol.
Although the time during the three hour workshop passed quickly I made sure all of their questions or concerns were address before anyone left the group.
If you have a small group that would be interested in any of my workshops please feel free to contact me with special requests.
