Join award winning fiber artist Andrea Brokenshire in her 5-day in-person workshop, Floral Painted Appliqué on Silk – Dippity Dots!
Andrea is inspired by the natural world. Won’t you join her in her paint box to learn Andrea's technique for painting realistic floral imagery onto silk. This workshop is divided into two sections. To make it easy, all materials you will need will be provided. In addition to painting your beautiful flower, she will also demonstrate how to create her highly textural confetti backgrounds and her technique for turning the edges of the finished applique’ for a clean finish. So let’s have some fun in Andrea's paintbox!
This is a great opportunity to try a fabric painting technique without making a large investment in brushes, textile paints, silk, etc. on your own!
Project Kit Fee: $225. Payable to Andrea Brokenshire the first day of class (mandatory).
