SILK PAINTING: THE SERTI TECHNIQUE with Cheri Reckers
In this workshop, students will have the opportunity to learn the art of silk painting using the serti technique (serti: meaning to “outline or enclose”) and as a result, be able to create a beautiful, one-of-a-kind, silk gift – perfect for Mother’s Day!
During the workshop, students can create their choice of a silk scarf, wall hanging or a table runner on silk habotai using fluid textile paint and water-based resist. Creative options that day will include experimenting with watercolor techniques or add texture with salt. Students can create their own simple design or use one provided by the instructor. After the workshop, students can expect to take their finished silk painting home with them (that can be washed after heat setting with an iron), the perfect gift for Mother’s Day!
No experience necessary! Just come in and have fun! All materials are provided!
Note: the paint will stain your clothing, please dress appropriately.
