Further studies on working to create depth with layered imagery including stencils, discharge and texture plates. A range of new stencils is available for this workshop, plus everything needed to make your own personalized stencils on heavy mylar.

Bring previously steamed silk that “needs something” and we will share ideas on new potential. Jane Dunnewold’s Soy Wax Crayons, professional grade dye sticks will be available to try.

Come with a sense of adventure to develop your own best imagery on silk


Pushing the boundaries of this ancient medium since 1984 and bringing a fine art sensibility to the interaction of dyes and resist on silk, SUZANNE PUNCH has opened up new possibilities of painterly expression.

Work has been exhibited across the US, in England and Japan in gallery, private and museum settings.

Suzanne has taught workshops in seven states across the country and in Canada. She is on the faculty of the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan.

In 2009, Suzanne was given the lifetime designation of Master Silk Painter by SPIN (Silk Painters International).
