Transform silk fabric into a surface rich with color and texture that can be turned into 3d vessels, books, boxes, wall art and more!
In this workshop I'll take you the process of transforming plain white silk fabric into a surface that mimics the look of an aged weathered metal surface. Then I will show you how to turn your surfaces into 3d vessels, books, boxes and wall art like my "zip it" piece below.
I have a limited number of getting started kits available for this online class that are available for purchase in my etsy shop here.
This online class has open enrollment - that means that as soon as you register and pay for the class you will have immediate access to all the lessons. That means no waiting for lessons to post each week!
Workshop lessons will include pdf files or video and some may contain both. This online learning platform has plenty of space for you to post photos and questions on each of the lessons and just like in an person classroom you’ll be able to interact with your fellow students and of course with me!
