What you'll do
Get ready for a fun learning and unique experience that isn't just about painting on silk fabric or a silk scarf. We start with water/ tea and light snacks while learning about different silks, and the creative process we will use for the day. The next step - is to create your own one of a kind scarf, fabric, wall hanging let your imagination led you as to what you would like to use the completed art piece for. Best of all, you'll leave with a scarf..... created by you. A masterpiece and a great sense of accomplishment. All materials and supplies will be provided. Participants are asked to bring rubber kitchen gloves (or disposable gloves). Additional silk will be available for a nominal fee, if time allows. If time permit and there is interest we'll discuss ways to wear a scarf, do some styling demos, tour the buildings artist quarters, rooftop pool and vintage theater.
I left Sierra Leone for Finland to study and pursue my love and passion for textile/fiber arts and manufacturing. Once I came to America I studied fashion design. The past 15 years I have designed, handcrafted and manufactured textiles in my studio that are used in my fashion and home collections sold in high end stores and boutique. I have been featured in WWD, shows and various media platforms. I've also enjoyed teaching and sharing my knowledge of textiles, fashion and fiber with fashion students / interns, summer schools, after school programs and with the retirement home community.
