Workshop on silk scarves and transformation

I’m giving a workshop tomorrow on personal transformation for a group of teachers at a great school where I used to teach. One of the things we’re doing is dyeing silk scarves and talking about silkworms as a symbol for transformation, etc. I had to practice the technique myself today since it’s not really in my “art repertoire” – it was fun and I think it will work as a metaphor for the group activity. First, we’ll write some favorite quotations on the silk about transformation, then do the dyeing project. Here are pictures from my experimenting this afternoon. I like doing workshops and am looking forward to this one, especially since it’s hard to make a mistake with abstract silk painting!
