Get started with silk painting with this introductory workshop with Linda Vorobik. This is a very satisfying art form, with some things you can control, and some things that it is more fun be surprised by the way the media (silk dyes) play on the silk. Several different types of silk are shown, different resists are introduced, along with different dyes and ways of fixing the dyes. The demonstration begins with the basics of supplies used, preparing the silk for dying, and stretching the silk on a frame, and continues with actually painting of silk dyes on the fabric, and different effects that can be achieved. The demonstration concludes with different ways to fix the silk dyes, washing, drying, ironing, and displaying final art.

Linda has many years of teaching experience in art, and as this is a relatively new medium for her (she has been working with silk a little more than one year), she is excellent for teaching beginners as she understands first-hand their questions and frustrations.

Supplies Linda will be using/displaying at the demo
silk frames
silks--various kinds
dyes--various kinds
brushes--various kinds
goudas--various kinds
hair dryer
silk steamer for setting dyes
