Silk Scarf Painting Kit and Pattern Kit

by Rekha on October 9, 2015

It’s been a little over a year since I launched the first Design Your Own Silk Scarf workshop in New York City and wow, what a year it has been! The success of this workshop has far exceeded my expectations. I’m thrilled that so many people are curious and interested in learning a new art form!

The excitement and interest for my in-person workshops encouraged me to figure out how I could teach this online to others who live across the country and across the globe. Well…now with my newly launched Design Your Silk Scarf Painting Kit or Pattern Kit, anyone living anywhere can join in the fun and learn! Kits are available in beginner, intermediate and advanced levels.

With a Design Your Own Silk Scarf Painting kit, you’ll receive:

• 14” x 72” white silk scarf
• The pattern to be traced onto the scarf
• Resist (water soluble material that creates a barrier and prevents the dye from flowing outside the resist lines.)
• Black or metallic gutta (for advanced kits only)
• Resist applicator bottle + metal tip
• Silk clips
• Paint tray
• 2 paintbrushes
• Silk Dyes
• Step-by-step instructions (online with video/audio and a printed guide – access code for online workshop will be included with the printed guide)

If you would rather purchase your own supplies, then you have the option of just getting the Pattern Kit. With the pattern kit, you’ll receive:

• Pattern to trace onto the scarf
• Step-by-step instructions (online with video/audio and printed guide – access code for online workshop will be included with the printed guide)
• Detailed supply list and direct links for where to buy
• Color card with suggested color palette silk dye options for the purchased pattern

Please allow 7-10 business days to prepare your silk scarf painting kit. For holiday gift shopping, please get your orders in by December 1st in order to allow enough time to pack and ship in time for the holiday season.

This Sunday, I’ll be live on Periscope at 12:30PM EST going over Lesson 5: Stretch the Silk and Lesson 6: Applying Resist. If you missed my other live sessions, not to worry, I’ll be repeating lessons on Sundays and at other times during the week. Remember the replay is available for 24 hours. Hop on over to my Facebook page to know my latest Periscope schedule. See you LIVE on Periscope on Sunday!



Special thanks to Alicia Anthony of Birdy27Designs who did the video shoot and editing. Alicia makes these gorgeous knitted hats and cowl neck scarves – perfect for winter. Here I am wearing some of her creations.
