Silk Painting - Where the Magic Happens !

Would you like to try Silk Painting?
Silk was a chosen painting support long before canvas or paper.
Silk paintings are created on white silk, the dyes are painted onto the stretched surface of the silk using a paintbrush.
The dye flows into the fiber, bond with the proteins and become part of the silk threads.
This is different than oil, acrylic, or water color paints which sits on the surface of the given support.
These paintings are steamed set locking the dyes into the fibers and making the color of the painting lightfast and washable.

Silk Painting is a sensual and goof-proof medium that satisfies both the beginner and the experienced artist.
There are several ways to achieve a silk painting, we have hundreds of patterns to choose from. It is a very calming and relaxing medium to play with.
You can paint a scarf, tie, picture, cushion, etc.
We teach you the century old french serti technique in the classes. It is easy, and you get surprisingly beautiful results.
