A Workshop with Dana Roman

Dana Roman, a local textile artist from Canmore is offering a 3-day workshop, 

Classic Silk Painting with a Touch of the Experimental



Here is some information about the workshop from Dana:-
"Classic silk painting" involves colour mixing, different resists, painting on dry and wet silk, texturing with the salt, blocking the spread of colour with the water, over painting with alcohol, etc...
"Touch of experimenting" (I believe that is something individuals will be able to do at home with the knowledge of the classic technique), but we will talk about and try the wax resist, working with the tjanting, working with stencils, finishing the wall pieces, overpainting with acrylics...
First two days we will be doing small samples and scarves, the third day we will work on the individual pieces. Depending on how many people I get, there might be possibility of signing up just for the first two days... it is always good to ask. One picture of large wallhanging is attached, painted by "classic gutta resist method".
When: February 17, 18, 19, 10am to 4pm with 1 hour break for lunch (if needed).
Where: In Dana's studio at 208 Benchlands Terrace, Canmore, AB, T1W1G1
Who: Silk painting for beginners and intermediate students.  Maximum 6 students
Cost:  3-day workshop - $450.00 Most of the supplies will be provided
