Scarf Silksation with Kerry Alexander from Queensland

2 Day Workshop - Saturday 1st & Sunday 2nd July

Join Kerry Alexander, owner of Kerry Sea Designs, for this exciting new workshop. During the two day workshop you will create your own designer silk scarves. You will explore the colours and patterns of vibrant marine life of the Great Barrier Reef and translate these into your own unique designs. Whether it is the blue rings of an Octopus, the striking bands of a Harlequin Tuskfish or the swirling waters of a rock pool, you are sure to find plenty of inspiration. You will use water based resist and heat set dyes from your kit and will let it all flow using both wet and dry painting techniques. Kerry will have a bountiful array of extra dye colours and a box of nifty tricks for you to use during the workshops. Top-secret techniques will be shared to create awesome effects on your piece. On day 1 you will explore marbling and painting techniques to blend and diffuse your colours to create two 150 x 28cm silk scarves. On day 2, having grasped new techniques, you will extend your skills to create specific effects on 2 more scarves. Tuck one of your new creations under your collar, tie one around your hat and make a splash on the streets of Airlie Beach!
