Reef Magic with Kerry Alexander from Queensland

2 Day Workshop - Monday 3rd & Tuesday 4th 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 top or jacket. You will explore the colours and patterns of vibrant marine life of the Great Barrier Reef and translate these into your own unique design. Whether it is the cobalt spots of a Coral Trout, the striking bands of the Lionfish or the swaying tentacles of an anemone, 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 painting techniques to blend and diffuse your colours to create a practice piece, before launching into a large project to create a glorious silk short kaftan or jacket. Leave the workshop wearing your new outfit and expect to receive a stream of compliments on your new look!
