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”) to create a beautiful, one-of-a-kind, silk work of art.
During the workshop, students can choose to create their choice of a silk scarf, wall hanging or a table runner on silk habotai using fluid textile paint and water-based resist. Students will have the opportunity to experiment with watercolor techniques and add texture with salt. Students can create their own design or use one provided by the instructor. After the workshop, students will take their finished silk painting home with them.
No experience necessary! Just come and have fun! All materials are provided!
