Japanese Shibori Silk Scarves

$25

with Sandi Cirillo

Calendar Nov 10, 2018 at 9 am

"Shibori" is the Japanese resist method of creating designs on silk scarves using PVC pipes. This is a unique process of wrapping our scarves around the pipe and watch as our creativity with silk dyes takes over, spilling color onto the pipe in layer after layer. You will also be given the opportunity to paint directly on your scarves. The science of art and the creativity of the individual unite in this workshop to produce two finished scarves that can be worn with pride or given as gifts. All participants should wear old clothes and bring an old towel to class. Limit to 8 students. Materials Fee: $10, payable to the instructor at the beginning of class. 1 Session.

Torch Fired Enameling

$15

with Amanda Coburn

Calendar Dec 1, 2018 at 9 am

Enameling is the process of fusing powdered glass material to metal to give it a smooth colored glass coating. You can combine colors to create an ombre effect, add wire to the surface to add texture and design, and so much more! In this workshop you'll learn the proper techniques of cutting, filing, cleaning and prepping the metal for the enameling process. You'll then have the rest of the class to play with the enameling techniques I'll teach you. You'll leave with several pieces. Some people use a kiln to enamel, but as purchasing a kiln can be expensive, I like to teach the skill using a propane torch. It's much more affordable to set up, and has some advantages over working with a kiln. Materials fee: $15, payable to the instructor at the beginning of class. 1 Session.
