This class will introduce you to the magical world of creating colourful starburst designs on silk. The art of silk dyeing with salt is fun, quick and easy to do.

We will begin with a two minute mindfulness practice to centre ourselves and connect with our inner creative wisdom. I will discuss a brief history of silk and go through the step by step process. You will choose your favourite colours to work with. Then it will be your turn to play, unleashing your creativity! Your design will then be transformed by the salt.

Each participant will receive a white Habotai silk scarf with rolled hems, measuring 45cm x 45cm. You will leave with a custom made completed artwork design on your scarf.

This workshop is ideal for anyone who would like to learn a new skill where beautiful, mesmerising patterns appear before your eyes. This is a truly unique experience you will thoroughly enjoy. Each piece turns out with organic designs in your favourite colours.

Duration of the class will be approximately two hours. It may be a bit longer depending on the size of the class. Groups and individuals welcome. Maximum number of students per class is 6.

Morning tea will be provided with great conversation, biscuits and organic tea.

I look forward to sharing this experience with you.
