The finest of fibers deserves the finest of designers. We’re not talking about Hermes or Pucci, we’re talking about you. Bird River Studios presents its Silk Painting Workshop, inviting you to create two silk scarves -- whether or not you wear it or frame it, that’s up to you. This three-hour course will focus on the fundamentals of painting on silk, and how to transform fantasy into fabricated reality. You’ll learn the basic silk-dyes, special-effect techniques, and proper paints. Your canvas is a luxurious silk scarf, ready to wear once finished... maybe wait for it to dry first.

Note: You are encouraged to bring design inspirations as a starting point
