Master Class in Silk Textile Creation

Join us on Sunday, April 14th from 10am to 5pm for a very special one day Master Class with Maia Tsinamdzgvrishvili, a contemporary artist visiting Maine from Tbilisi, Georgia.  In this unique fiber art workshop participants will make two sheets of silk paper using different materials.  One sheet will combine silk and wool.  You will learn the felting process and see how the materials evolve from a very thin and lace like fabric to a solid one.  The finished product can be used as a picture or even a book cover.  The uses are limited only to your imagination.  The finished size of your sheets will be slightly less than 40 cm x 40 cm (15.5″ x 15.5″).

Maia Tsinamdzgvrishvili is a graduate of the Tbilisi Vocational Art College with an additional four years of study at the Tbilisi State Academy of Fine Arts, Textile Department.  She has exhibited widely in Georgia as well as in Poland, Switzerland, Israel, China, Spain, France, Russia, and Belgium.  Maia has conducted master classes in Georgia, the Netherlands, and Florida (March 2013).  She is recognized as the finest Georgian contemporary artist working in silk.

There is a minimum 5,  maximum of 12 students. Sign up early! — call the Harlow at 622-3813 or email us at Please plan to pay in advance to hold your seat in the class.

Tuition is  $50  for member of the Kennebec Valley Art Association or $60 for non-members, plus a materials fee of  $10
