A Taste of Silk Dye Painting

May 21, 2023 2:00PM—5:00PM


SEFAA Center 3420 W. Hospital Ave. Chamblee, GA 30341



Try your hand at painting with silk dyes in this fun and easy class! Choose one of three pre-resisted designs -a peony, dogwood flowers, or clown fish – to learn to apply silk dyes and enjoy a colorful, magical journey. The instructor will steam set your finished piece for you to pick up at the SEFAA Center a week or so after class, or you can have it mailed to you along with instructions on washing, rinsing, and ironing. Then, place your finished work in an embroidery hoop (provided) and enjoy it for years to come!

Originally a ceramics major, Hellenne Vermillion fell in love with silk painting over ten years ago and she’s been creating various silk works for shows and art sales ever since. Her work has been featured three times on the cover of Silkworm magazine and has been in many silk art shows. She is also an experienced, giving, and patient instructor who teaches a wide variety of textile techniques. View Hellenne’s artwork at hellenne-vermillion.com.
