Silk Painting Demo

This Wednesday, November 10th, Nancy Goldman will be demonstrating silk painting basics.

Silk painting is an exciting medium that uses a resist to control the movement of silk dyes.  The dyes become a permanent part of the fabric after they are steam set.  Many of the painting techniques are similar to those used with watercolor.  Some of Nancy's silk paintings can be seen at

Please join us on Wednesday at 7:00.  Our meetings are held at 300 South C St.  Tustin, CA
