CR-02-19 Silk Painting: The Serti Technique with Cheri Reckers



In this workshop, students will experience the art of silk painting and the serti technique (serti: meaning to "outline or enclose"). They will create a one-of-a-kind scarf, wall hanging or table runner on silk habotai using fluid textile paint and water-based resist. They will experiment with watercolor techniques and may choose to add texture with salt. Students can expect to take their finished silk painting home with them! They can be washed after heat setting with an iron. Students can create their own simple design on their artwork or use one of the instructor's. Students can also depict a holiday pattern on the silk. They make beautiful holiday gifts!

No experience necessary! Just come and have fun!
