How long does it take to make a scarf?
Can I wear my scarf out of the event?
Is the paint safe?
Is that just plain, ordinary water?
I just created my own stunning silk scarf. How do I care for it once I get it home?
*Caring for your new silk scarf
The paint on your beautiful scarf is fragile until all the following instructions have been completed.
- Re-hydrate in a bowl or sink of cool/lukewarm water, carefully unfolding once saturated.
- Add a splash of softener, if a softer feel is desired.
- Do NOT wring, twist or squeeze your scarf.
- Drip Dry
- Hang to drip dry. Placing a rag or towel under dripping scarf is recommended.
- Hot Dry Iron
- Iron the BACK side of your scarf using the hot (cotton) DRY setting.
- Your beautiful hand painted scarf is ready to wear!
Future Care: Hand wash in mild detergent, hang to drip dry, press backside with low heat. Do NOT dry clean!
When are you offering your next experience to make a water marbled silk scarf?
We currently offer water marbling experiences in both Central and Southern Oregon. However, we are open to possibly having “sister adventures” in other cities. Does your town have chocolate or unicorns? Jus' sayin'! Contact us for details.
May I book a private workshop/class/party or corporate event?
What are your business hours?
Sisters Silk Art Studios are located in Medford, OR and Redmond, OR . Studio hours for both locations are by appointment only. If you would like to attend a workshop, please check out the Workshops page and register online. If you want to schedule an event, big or small, please contact us with the location of the event and an approximate date. We look forward to your creative session of water marbling!
We are also a mobile business. This means we will bring our water marbling trays, paints, scarves and artisans to your private "Sip & Swirl" workshop/party in your home, church, club house or other location available to you. We have a 10-scarf minimum to travel to your location. The $50 local travel/set-up fee is waived for events purchasing 15 scarves or more.
Do you have to be “artsy” to be able to achieve a beautiful scarf?
Absolutely not! Everyone has a creative side waiting to be unleashed. This is the perfect opportunity to give it a “swirl”! Ages 2-80+ have been successful in creating a beautiful masterpiece!
