Location: The Art Studio; 111 Elk Ave Crested Butte, CO 81224
Details: Painting on Silk: Saturday, April 28. 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. $50 + $15 supply fee.

Using resist and an array of vibrant permanent dyes, paint on a 52-inch hemmed silk scarf.  Start by stretching and pinning the scarf on an elevated surface.  Then instructor Mary Tuck shows how to either use basic shapes to create colorful textures on the silk or use a tie dye technique to capture the colors and vibrancy of a pattern.  Finish by adding accent colors to the background and then iron to set the color.  Your silk scarf will be ready to wear home! Instructor: Mary Tuck.
