Updated Imagery on Silk Class- 2 Days


We all have work that was completed but isn’t as pleasing as we had hoped for.

Here’s the basic fact: There’s no such thing as a bad silk painting, only an unfinished one!

Together, we will learn multiple techniques for expanding the impact of a painting, steamed or not. Color coordination, textures and layered imagery are among the options as Suzanne gives you in her caring view of your previous work, respecting all your efforts already made. 

New possibilities and greater creativity await.
