A Workshop with Leslie Perrino

Silk Scarf Painting with Leslie Perrino, 5/8/16

Fee: $85/ $75 members (all materials included)
Registration: Registration is closed. For information on future sessions, sign up for our e-list.

Lynden is offering a series of holiday giftmaking workshops in November and December. They range from simple activities suitable for families with smaller children to more advanced workshops for adults. Whether you are making a gift for yourself or another, these workshops should provide a cheerful atmosphere for art making as we head into winter. To see a complete list of holiday giftmaking workshops, visit our Workshops page.

This daylong workshop will explore easy and artful ways to apply dye to pre-hemmed silk scarves. From simple techniques such as tie-dyeing, resist and salt, to interesting ways to make marks, we’ll let ourselves be inspired by the wonderful art and nature surrounding us at Lynden.

Each student will create three wearable and uniquely painted scarves using this centuries-old painting form. No experience required, and all materials supplied. Remember: using dyes can be messy. We'll supply you with an apron, but please wear clothes that you don't mind getting stained.

Bring a bag lunch and beverages.

About The Self Care Studio

The Self Care Studio is a platform that illuminates the practice of self-care techniques through a variety of mediums. The studio’s online presence shares daily positive reminders in our social media-driven culture. By posting illustrations and texts the studio aims to promote self-kindness in times of healing, radical self-forgiveness, and prioritizing ourselves with mantras such as “self-care is not selfish.”  The Self Care Studio also exists in the physical world as a pop-up shop. It sells self-care merchandise and facilitates workshops that provide a variety of hands-on sensory projects that encourage us to carve out time for ourselves by slowing down in the present moment. The Self Care Studio is a project of artist, author, and activist Jenna Knapp.
