Children's party 'making a silky soft cuddly pillow'
Painting on silk is an ancient technique that has actually been somewhat forgotten, which is a shame, because it is a versatile technique that is very relaxing to do! Yet it is possible to learn something of this unique technique at your party. At the end of the party, everyone goes home with a wonderfully soft hand-sized cuddly pillow. What a nice keepsake that is!
What do we do?
To become familiar with the materials, we will first mix silk paint and paint a color cirkle on silk, we will learn a salt technique and learn what is it like to trace a pattern on silk with serti. Once we have mastered these techniques, we will paint a predetermined and drawn image for the cushion on a new stretcher. When this painting is dry, we remove the silk and sew it with a needle and thread onto the cushion, which already has a soft fur layer on one side. With your personal painting it becomes truly unique!
Because the technique is quite difficult to learn, this party is suitable for children aged 9-12 with a group size of 6-8 children. The workshop lasts 2 hours including a break and costs
€ 225,-, including materials and excluding location and transport costs outside Amsterdam.
