A Downtown Date-Night Event
Join our experienced Artist-In-Residence, Kim Desrosiers, for an exciting Introduction to Silk Painting event!
Discover the art of painting on silk and be a part of ‘Silk City’s’ artistic history. Beginning in 1838, the Cheney Brothers silk mills made Manchester the largest silk manufacturer in the nation.
During this hands-on workshop, you will learn various techniques to create a beautiful sunflower on silk fabric. Kim will guide you through the process, from transferring the image to applying dyes and creating a stunning piece of artwork.
We are also partnering with THE MAIN COURSE who will include a complimentary Apple Cider Mimosa & Appetizer at the event. Participants will also receive a coupon to The Main Course to be used through October and $2 off a drink at Urban Lodge the night of the event only.
