Students will primarily explore water soluble resist using the serti method of silk painting. The artists will learn to transfer a design onto silk, apply resist lines and experiment with a number of other silk painting techniques. Artists will go home with one scarf and one small stretched practice piece. As Debbi guides each artist through the possibilities their painting presents, there will be a number of demonstrations.
This is an eight hour class. All supplies are included in the class fee. If you'd like to bring your own design, please prepare a dark lined actual size design. You may choose a silk satin 8x54 or a Habotai 11x60. The instructor can help you find a design if needed.
Instructor: Debbi Sigg
In 2008 Debbi Sigg found herself wanting to give elementary students art experiences they would cherish. Believing that quality materials are key to creating pieces of art with high success and pride, silk painting was a perfect project. Soon Debbi began giving her own silk paintings to a number of charities for auctions. She became a member of Silk Painters International and the Utah Surface Design Group. She has studied under many master silk artists.
For her personal artistic process, each of Debbi's silk paintings begins with hours of research into the subject matter and the creation of a unique composition. She relies on years of practice and a toolbox of acquired techniques to create her art.
In 2008 Debbi began a similar journey into the exploration of encaustic painting. She finds both mediums challenging with seemingly limitless possibilities and strives to highlight the intricacies of both silk painting and encaustic art in her works.
Debbi teaches local silk painting workshops to all ages and has exhibited her work throughout Utah. She was raised in New Mexico and has lived in Colorado, Oregon, Ohio, and Utah. She holds two Bachelor's degrees from Oregon State University.
