Silk Painting

Silk Painting Workshop

Saturday, January 21, 2017 found 16 of us participating in a Silk Painting Workshop led by one of our members, Susan Cuss.  The Children’s Montessori School located in the Peterborough Armouries on Murray Street was kind enough to provide us a location for our workshop.

The techniques that Suz demonstrated were arashi shibori, itajime shibori (fold and dip), funky fibers, stencilling/stamping and shape and dab.  We started with our 12″ x 12″ silk hankies and a 36″ x 12″ silk scarf.  We had a fantastic time making our creations.  A very big thank you to Suz for taking the time to teach us these techniques.
