Silk Scarf Painting Parties

Looking for a fun and creative way to spend time with friends?  Consider a silk scarf painting party at the Studio…perfect for a Girls’ Night Out, Birthday or Bachelorette party!

  • $350 covers up to 8 people, three hours of demonstration, instruction and hands-on creation. Each person creates their own painted 100% silk scarf using luscious French dyes.  Since these dyes require steam setting, Marilyn will take care of that after the party and scarves will be ready for pick-up or mail delivery within 5 days of the party.
  • Material costs are $30 per person
  • We have a functioning kitchen and can provide plates, cutlery and glasses is you wish to bring refreshments for your party. There is a $25 fee for refreshment set-up and breakdown; please let us know if you would like to bring refreshments so we can have a layout prepared for you.

Relax With Wine and Silk Events

  • Several times a year the Studio hosts “classes” in silk painting. Demonstration and instruction is given before participants paint their own 100% silk scarf using luscious French dyes.  Since these dyes require steam setting, Marilyn will take care of that after the class and scarves will be ready for pick-up or mail delivery within 5 days of the class.
  • Tuition is $89 per person and includes Materials fee.
  • Wine, other beverages and light refreshments will be served.
