    Namaste! For centuries Prayer Flags have been hung to send beneficial prayers and good fortune into the atmosphere every time the wind blows them. Using centuries old ground rules we will design our own interpretations of Tibetan Prayer Flags. Each participant will be given a blank set of five flags to be decorated with prayers, positivity, good vibes, and the artists' energy. To decorate the flags we'll use vintage wood blocks from Norm's collection along with pens and paints. When they are completed they can be used to decorate home and garden areas! All supplies provided.

    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)
