Silk Scarf Painting

with Julie Yarborough


Beautiful silk, so lovely and alluring. Take the process of silk painting from the beginning -- stretching the silk, choosing a design that is appropriate to the medium, and applying your design, the resist, the dyes; to the finished scarf: setting the dyes, detaching and rinsing the scarf, and finally enjoying the work of our hands. Many design choices and the silk stretchers for use in class are provided. No prior experience needed. Please bring a bag lunch (or purchase at a local shop), an old bath towel and an apron. Tuition includes kit containing two resists, brushes, a set of silk paints, a silk scarf, and a paint palette.

Julie Yarborough, a lifelong artist, practiced graphic arts for 13 years before moving to ME and becoming a farmer and ceramic artist. She teaches in the US and internationally.
