Silk Painting with Sandy Melroy

Workshop canceled    hope to reschedule in 2020

Two Day workshop     Saturday and Sunday October 19 & 20, 2019 9:00 – 5:00 pm

                                      Cost: Workshop: $175

                                    Registration Deadline September 20

                                      Materials: $40 (collected on first day of workshop)

 

Sandy has been creating hand painted silk textiles for almost 20 years . She learned to love this form of fiber art while living in England, and now, happily living back in Wisconsin, she shares her experience to people of all ages and experience levels.

Even if you have never held a paintbrush or ever tried your hand in creating textile art, Sandy is certain you will love the process of applying water based paints (as thin as a dye) to luxury silk fabric for a unique and colorful piece of art.

For this workshop, Sandy begins with a trunk show of her silk painted scarves, wearable art pieces and framed silk art for inspiration, along with many books and ideas for drawing designs.

Additionally, she brings ALL supplies for this workshop. You will have the opportunity to create several sample pieces using a variety of techniques (wet on wet, salt, resists , stamping, etc.) and will take home a piece ready to frame, some painted/embellished silk yardage (suitable for incorporating in other textile projects) and even a ‘suncatcher’ to welcome in the sunlight in your home.

Register soon for your place in this fun workshop!
