Wondering what to expect when you attend one of our events? Wonder no more!

You’ll walk away with something beautiful

There is absolutely no artistic experience required for our silk painting parties to be fun, relaxing and rewarding. We have the painting part lead by an experienced art instructor so you complete the painting in a step-by-step fashion, to ensures that even if you’ve never seen a paintbrush, you will create something unique and beautiful!

We’re a silk painting party event…heavy emphasis on party!

We pride ourselves on making sure everybody has an extraordinarily good time.  We feature games, prizes, giveaways and everything is always presented in an upbeat fashion (even the instruction!).  We also ensure that there is plenty of break time for sipping, snacking & socializing.

 

We provide everything but the food and drinks

That means we provide you with the wearable “blank silk canvas”, and by the time we are done you will have your very own work of art. Of course we also have art supplies, aprons, glasses, ice, music and an unbelievably fun party atmosphere! All guests are welcome to bring food and beverage of choice and even some snacks.  Some of our attendees get pretty elaborate with the “snack platters” they bring along for themselves and others!

 

The perfect way to spend an evening

We open the doors to our parties thirty minutes before the step-by-step art instruction begins.  This is so you can come in and get yourself settled in and get your drinks and snacks ready.  Generally our parties last two hours, but depending on the project it could push closer to three.  

FAQ

What Parties are Available for me to Register?


That’s our favorite question! You can see a list of all available events you can attend on our event calendar here.




Where is the Venue/Party Held?


We are excited to announce our new venue is located at 1142 Wyoming Ave, Forty Fort PA and the home of all of our public events. Although, we do occasionally host events off-site. Contact us for specific information about projects/pricing.




Do I need Prior Experience with Painting?


There is absolutely no artistic experience required! Our parties are instructed in a step-by-step fashion by an art instructor.




Is what I Paint Washable after I paint it?


Yes, it most definitely is! We provide a combination of paints, dyes and markers to paint with and combine it with a proprietary “secret recipe” fixative agent that ensures all of the finished products that you can paint are washable for a long lasting vibrancy!




What is Silk Painting? How did this become "A Thing"?


Silk painting is actually an age old tradition, and is actually the traditional way of painting in Asia. One of the earliest surviving Chinese silk paintings is a 2-metre long T-shaped painting, dated around 165 BCE, from the Mawangdui Tomb. It is extremely popular in Europe and is quickly becoming extremely popular here in the US as both an art form and a hobby for at home enthusiasts.




What Will I Be Painting On?


We will provide you with a 11″ x 60″ silk scarf to apply the paints, dyes and markers (which we also provide) onto. We will soon be adding silk wall-hangings, sun catchers and sarongs beginning in April of 2016.




Can I actually use the Painted Item afterwards?


Absolutely! Not only are our parties fun, you actually walk away with a functional/wearable work of art that you yourself created! They are the perfect accessory and we guarantee you’ll be regularly asked where you got such a beautiful article of clothing.




How does the Paint/Dye stay on what I Painted?


We actually have our own proprietary “secret recipe” fixative agent that ensures all of the finished painted scarves and other items are washable, wearable and retain a long lasting vibrancy. Normally, to achieve those qualities, it would take a grueling 4 hour steaming process. However with the fixative process that we personally developed you get the same results and an “out the door” product in much less time!




Do you provide the Alcohol/Drinks?


No, we do not supply any food or beverages, but participants are guests are welcome to bring food and beverage of choice. We’ve actually been impressed by some of the more elaborate drink and snack setups some of our party attendees have gotten!

Can I book a Private Party/Event?


You most definitely can! We’ve hosted private parties for birthdays, showers, team building exercises or much more for groups of 8 or more. See our "Contact Us" page to request more information.




How Long does the Party last?


We open our doors thirty minutes prior to the start of the party (have a look at our calendar here). The painting then begins at the time you see on the event you signed up for. Most projects are two hours long, but umbrellas could be closer to three hours.
