The other day, I was selling my scarves at an Artisan market. A lady fell in love with a scarf that I printed using the technique of transferring dyes from other fabric. She was so impressed with that silk scarf that I then decided that maybe it’s a good time to teach this workshop again. You will not believe how much fun and easy this workshop is. Once you learn the basics, you can use this technique it to make pillows, wall-hangings, clothing, etc. You will go home with a beautiful silk scarf, but that’s not all. When we wait for the scarf to get steamed and the dyes to set, we will work on another project doing samples of other forms of art on silk fabrics.
