Day 1 On the first day we did a Silk sample of 9 different techniques. We were shown how to put our silk onto a frame and make it tight so that we could paint on it. We used various mediums, such as salt, vinegar, glue, guta, metalic paint, water, different brushes all to create a variety of effects. Most of us had finished our sample by the end of the class.
Day 2 This was an exciting day, we learnt how to apply wax to create a Batik effect. Also we did 2 different types of tie dying. We were all enjoying very much learning other techniques as well.
Day 3 Our final day. We had to choose a design of our own to do whatever we wanted using some of the techniques we had learned. Uzma was a great teacher and has many skills, not only silk painting but designing as well. It was a wonderful class and we all gained much information and learned many different techniques. We now want to go home and try them all out and Practice!
Thank you very much Uzma for all your time and patience in teaching us. Most of all your lovely pleasant happy manner. It was a joy to be part of the class with all the other girls. Also thanks for our Certificates.
