Have you ever wanted to wear your silk designs out on the town? Now is your opportunity! Think "Fashion Runway meets Etsy!" in this rare opportunity to spend time in the workshop of one of the best Fine Art silk painting artists on the West Coast.
Natasha works on 'blanks' in this workshop on larger scale frames for scarves and a very large floor frame that can accommodate shawls and kimono-sized panels of fabric. Developing wearable art is her forté and we explore a variety of techniques and considerations for working in large scale work, working fast, and developing successful larger lengths of fabric. The workshop includes a discussion on how to build a larger frame at home as well as design considerations for wearables and working on smaller and larger projects in your studio.
PDF Project Patterns are provided for each project, while HD Video demonstrations provide the necessary visual aides to ensure your success.
Four workshops in one! Have a look below at what's included:
