Question from Maria C.
Hello, I would like to visit your full day Silk painting class with Susann Punch. 1. What the supplies are your providing, if yes what size of silk and frames? 2. Are you providing the steamer to fix the silk painting at the end ? 3. Can we use this work at home or as a scarf? Thank you
Answer from Jen C.
We have two options in terms of supplies. The first, being the most popular option, is that the instructor will provide all of the supplies while the student pays a $40 materials fee to the instructor. The second option (usually for more experienced silk painters) is a $25 materials fee in which we provide the scarf and some materials in class, but the student would have to provide many of the supplies such as silk dyes, brushes, containers, etc.
Answer from Jen C.
We have two sizes of silk scarves to choose from -- a 34x34" square scarf or a 14x72” oblong scarf. After the class, our instructor will steam the scarves at her studio and she will provide pick up information to the students. After this happens, the scarves are able to be worn and washed. Our instructor sends out a more detailed version of the supply list and class information a week before the class.

This clan was very fun, and I ended up with a beautiful scarf at the end! A things to keep in mind: first, you’re working with dyes, so wear old clothes! Second, these scarves need to be set with steam for a few hours, so you won’t be able to take yours home immediately. You’ll be able to either pay Suzanna a few dollars to have it mailed to you, or you can pick it up at her home.
