August 11-15, 2017
19 Kuhn Road, Layton NJ


Instructor: Suzanne Punch
Moth and butterfly wings, beautiful and balanced, give us free rein to explore color in challenging ways. Templates give a quick start for good composition. Then break out of your predictable palette, those same colors you always reach for. Using thickened dye, you can maintain a color within a field of its opposite and create flickering contrasts. Texture adds to the intrigue. Use color in new ways and see unique possibilities in your work on silk. Harmonies await! Note: dyes are not included in the materials fee and can be brought by the participant or purchased through Peters Valley.
