Ever fancy yourself a designer?
Fashioning your own wardrobe has never been more accessible. If you’ve ever thought yourself suitable for the job, but didn’t know where to start, you can try your hand at Dallas Silk Art – a silk marbling studio that just opened a new location in Grandscape!
At the Dallas Silk Art studio, visitors will be able to practice the art of water marbling. The creative process involves dripping colorful paints on an aqueous surface to produce patterns akin to marble. Once you’ve created your design, your artwork will be transferred to a treated, soon wearable, fabric.
Presently, the studio is offers a variety of fabrics in which to apply your design in the form of Haboti Silk Scarves ($25 – $45 depending on size), Satin Silk Handkerchiefs/Pocket Squares ($25), cork coasters, paperboard coasters ($25 – $40 depending on size and quantity), and cotton face masks ($10 plus tax). Pottery options and other products are to be announced soon.
To help get the creative juices flowing, visitors will also receive a discounted price on adult beverages from The Colony Wine Bar.
The studio has scheduled numerous upcoming workshops from 2 – 8 pm Thursday through Sunday throughout the month of March. Visitors must register at least 24 hours beforehand and select the materials that they wish to produce.
Additionally, visitors can rent out the studio for birthdays, weddings, and/or corporate events here.
