FABRIC PAINTING WORKSHOP SERIES
WITH CECELIA CLAIRE
This month we’re partnering with our neighbors at Stone Mountain & Daughter Fabrics for a two-part workshop series:
PART 1: HANDPAINTED FABRIC: Repeating Florals on Cotton
Learn how to hand-sketch a repeating floral pattern and paint it on luxurious double gauze cotton. We'll go over design basics, hand repeats, and how to handle, apply and set textile paint from Jacquard.
PART 2: SILK PAINTING: Watercolor Technique on Charmeuse
Learn how to prepare, paint and set silk with using silk paints from Marabu. Unlike many other classes, this will not be a resist-based technique, so you will end up with a result that is just like a watercolor painting without worrying about wax outlines.
After each session, you'll have your own half-yard of hand-painted fabric, big enough to sew a small cushion cover or tote — or just finish the edges and you've got a scarf!
$100 class fee. All materials included. Additional paint colors available in store.
Please call (510) 704-4040 or stop by the store to sign up!
