Workshop: Paint Your Own Silk Scarf


Paint Your Own Silk Scarf Workshop VAC

Join Big Island artist Patti Pease Johnson, for the Paint Your Own Silk Scarf workshop on Saturday, October 26, from 9:00am-12:30pm at Volcano Art Center.

Open up your creativity and challenge yourself by learning this fun technique. It’s guaranteed to change the way you look at color. Better yet, you might discover your newest passion.

silkscarf2In this workshop, you’ll paint your own 8” x 53” scarf using three colors of your choice, which will create many more colors on the silk. Pick a main color, then, choose the other two after learning about color theory. You’ll then be ready to mix your desired colors, achieved by pre-mixing the four process colors (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black). Students from previous classes have been amazed by what they refer to as “happy color accidents.”
In the final hour, students will use hot wax with the tjanting tool on Habotai silk to outline your more representational design and create a resist line for the dyes. Then you will paint and mix colors on the 10” x 10” silk artwork.

Patti Pease Johnson will tell you, “It’s all about playing with colors.” Why not reward yourself by creating your very own inspired silk scarf.

Cost for the workshop is $50 and $45 for VAC Members plus a $15 supply fee per person. Beginner and intermediate artists are welcome.

This workshop is FULL! Please contact VAC to be placed on a Wait List.
