    Facilitator: Emily Watson Rice

    Learn the art of silk dyeing! This simple technique is easy to grasp for novices but flexible enough to allow for loads of creativity. Once students have learned the basics of ombre dyeing, they will learn the unique technique of layering lace transfer dyes over top of their ombre. Students will experiment on practice fabric before moving to their main project — dyeing their own silk scarf. Dress for mess — wear clothes and shoes that you don’t mind getting permanently dyed. 

    Fee includes rubber gloves, dye & two silk scarves. Additional scarves will be available for purchase during class, if students would like to work on additional projects. ($10-$25 each depending on the size)

      Namaste! For centuries Prayer Flags have been hung to send beneficial prayers and good fortune into the atmosphere every time the wind blows. Using centuries old ground rules we will interpret and design a single Prayer Banner. Each participant will be given a 20x20 cotton banner to decorate with prayers, positivity, good vibes, and the artists' energy. To decorate the banner, we'll use vintage wood blocks from Norm's collection along with pens and paints. When the banner is completed, it can be used to decorate home or garden! All supplies provided.
