What you'll do

After a quick explanation of the basics, we will start by choosing the range of color we want to use. We will proceed in stages. Each person will advances at his own pace. Everyone can do this - you leave here when the scarf is finished. The drawing is prepared in advance (so no need of drawing skills) - every piece is different and personalized. But if you want a specific design, then we can talk it through and I will help you realize that. In that case two sessions are needed. One for the drawing and one for the paint. They can be done the same day. In that case, lunch is offered. Silk has to be fixed, so : you can either take the scarf with you the same day or leave it here for the fixing process (steam fixing) and I send it to you by mail. Once fixed, the colors last forever and you will have a personalized scarf for yourself, or to offer as a perfect/unique gift. The experience is offered in French and or English.
Other things to note
A la fin de l'expérience, on peut : soit repartir avec son oeuvre (non fixée) ou la laisser au studio pour le fixage, et elle vous sera envoyée, une fois fixée à l'étuvage.

Having a long training in arts and drawing I decided to share the pleasures of silk painting. My experience will facilitate the first steps, the discovery of this technique and all the explorations it allows. Living and vibrant material, silk reflects the color, enriched with iridescent shades, changing according to the light, day or night. The freedom of the gesture is total and the result is always unforgettable.

Very relaxing and creative experience; I discovered all the magic about silk painting. Eva manages to convey her passion and she makes sure you will get something that matches what you want. And on top of this we had very interesting discussion. I highly recommend :)

We had a great time with Eva making our scarves! It's a relaxing, creative experience with a beautiful outcome. Anyone can participate, you don't need to be a skilled or experienced painter. Eva was very friendly and explained everything to us. We definitely recommend it! It's a lot of fun :)

It was a truly pleasurable and stimulating experience. Eva guided us gently and unobtrusively, yet surely and skillfully. We talked about various things, listened to baroque and jazz music. I highly recommend! And the results were very good! A scarf with a lot of emotions.

For someone with zero painting experience, I was super amazed at the outcome of my workshop with Eva. She guided me through the whole experience in a manner that I could really paint out thoughts and feelings. This is definitely an experience I would recommend to anyone! Great value for money!

Making our scarves with Eva was so much fun from beginning to end. She is very knowledgeable about the process and wants to make sure you walk away with a piece you'll be proud to wear. She has a great eye for color and design. Even if you don't have a lot of painting experience, she will teach you the correct techniques to apply the color on the silk and make a beautiful piece. Our time with her flew by because we enjoyed chatting and painting while listening to her excellent music playlist. It was a creative and relaxing way to spend a morning/afternoon. We would both love to go back to make more scarves and highly recommend this unique experience!

Went in with zero expectations and left with a huge smile. Excellent activity for escaping the typical and exploring your creative side. Eva made it easy and fun, while sharing her passion for art and colours. Best two and a half hours of my week!
