Fun with Silk

May has been busy with workshops and it has been great fun to experiment with silk again.  Adult and family workshops focused on natural dyeing techniques and beautiful silk scarves were produced. In the after school art club we explored silk paper making adding vibrant colour with silk paints, a messy class but great fun.  Lastly,  shibori techniques were used to dye silk scarves using steam fix silk dyes in the Fabric Fun adult workshop.  The Fabric Fun project at Corner 9 Arts Project has now been completed and it has been wonderful to be part of this project and introduce others to a variety of textile crafts.
