This tunic has amazing embroidery, but needed another layer to soften it. A simple leaf screen was added by the beading and around the bottom of the sleeves.

Color Your Stash!
This fun class teaches you how to easily transform and update your fabrics! Using fabric paints and silk screen images, you can quickly make your fabric come alive! This is a one day class.

Color Your Stash Class

Scarves,
Gorgeous Scarves, Banners
& Table Runners

We start the class using 12" x 14"
silk charmeuse and organza silks to
understand the process of dyeing and printing. You will have a wide silk charmeuse scarf for the background
and a narrower silk organza scarf in
the foreground. The combination is beautiful, and each allows you to use different techniques. Color, imagery
and details will come to life with dyes, paints and silkscreening. Check out the beautiful banners here. Click on them to see more detail.


Dye and Print: Scarves
Combine dyes, paints and silk screening on silk scarves! Silk takes color so beautifully! After dyeing the silks, we'll add imagery and paint, creating depth and interest. Totally fun with lots of opportunities to increase your skills.
