Yes, you’ll go home with two totally unique silk scarves! Under the enthusiastic guidance of Muddy Creek artist Lynne Gessner, you’ll learn how to create a painted silk scarf using a unique process to transfer acrylic ink paints onto silk. The pigment used will maintain the shine and texture of the silk with no steaming necessary. We will be spreading a layer of foam (shaving cream) and applying tiny ink drops on it. Designs will be created with the ink using wooden skewers. When the colors are blended a blank silk scarf will be gently placed on the foam to transfer the design to the scarf. This is the magic part! When the color has soaked through,  the silk will be gently lifted to reveal your luxurious silk scarf.

Each participant will produce 2 scarves using a traditional light silk and a thicker satin textured silk. Your choice of colors and pattern will make every scarf unique!

We will be using acrylic ink paints and lots of foam, so wear a smock since things may get messy. However, these paints are washable until they are heat set.

This Muddy Creek DoART event will be held at the Elks Lodge in Deale, MD. This is a wonderful venue and your $40 fee includes expert instruction, all art materials for this project, 2 silk scarves, one complimentary beverage from the bar, and an assortment of fruit and desserts. The Elks will also have a cash bar open during the event.
