Did you know that I teach painting/craft classes? YES! I can combine these with a balloon twisting or face painting time at a birthday or other type of party. Or they can be scheduled as standalone events.
One of the surprising offerings is a silk scarf/handkerchief dying class. Sounds messy – right? Not at all! I work with a very unique type of dye that requires no soda bath or special rinsing.
This is a great class for a “Girls Night Out” or birthday party (ages 8 and above). I provide one silk scarf and one silk handkerchief for each participant – along with the dyes. You will need to ask everyone to bring along one bath towel (we use it to squeeze out excess water). I will also bring along ironing “stations” to finish the scarves/handkerchiefs. Everyone goes home with their finished and ready-to-wear silk items.
Depending on the room you have available, this is a suitable event for up to 20 adult guests (age 13 and above). Limit of 10 participants for children 12 and under. The recommended age is 8 and above.
Of course, if you want to paint a design on the scarf, we can do that as well. This requires a little bit of painting background but we can work out designs that will meet the skills of the planned group.
