Award winning silk painter, Vicki Damon, is once again offering her much sought after workshops in the art of painting on silk with French dyes. These advanced workshops are in depth, hands on 4+ hour classes focusing on the use of mixing French dyes and silk painting techniques that go beyond that which was studied in the Beginner’s Workshop. Blending dyes, new techniques to create texture, and using additional products on silk are just a few of the details of this intense, hands on workshop.
