BAA – 1-Day Workshop with Artist Nancy Cawdrey / Introduction to Dye on Silk Painting

October 23 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

This will be a fun exploratory class using various ancient and modern applications in silk painting, including gold and clear gutta resist, “no flow” technique, wet-on-wet, dry brush, washes, detailing, and so forth. Nancy will do short demonstrations to show the various techniques and sequences of silk painting, step by step. As in all water media, light to dark application of dye is important. We will learn the rules and then encourage participants to “break” the rules to achieve their own unique style. There will be opportunities to learn from each other. Materials will be provided, although participants are welcome to bring their own supplies, including silk, dyes, gutta, stretcher bars, etc. Participants are encouraged to bring some simple drawings/ideas to paint (butterflies, animals, sky photos, flowers). The format size will be 8″ x 10″ and 6″ x 6″. Minimum of 6 students, Maximum of 10 students. FEE: $175 for Booth Museum Members, $225 for not-yet-members. All Supplies Included. Register
