Classes and Workshops at SKEA

SILK Painting workshop with
Marya Mann

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 1:00-5:00 PM &
ALL AGES WELCOME. Call SKEA @ (808) 328-9392 for more info or to register

Go with the flow using colors, dyes, wax, and resist to create one-of-a-kind works of art. Letting water move the color on silk produces soft lines and blended hues similar to water color, but even a beginner can enjoy extraordinary effects using the right tools and materials. Marya will teach the step-by-step foundations of silk painting and show how salt, alcohol, and other materials make original art that is both sensuous and soulful. Students will join fun, fluidity and flair to make their own clothing, wall hangings, or prayer flags.

All materials provided. Students will go home with an original silk scarf or wall hanging.

For more information call or email Marya:
