This morning I attempted something new – the art of silk painting!
I enrolled in a private class here in Jeddah given by a lovely lady named Q.
Q has been doing silk painting since she was a teen.

I opted to draw my fish design freehand.
There were floral guides available that the other women used.
We learned a bit about the history of silk painting, tools and materials required, and then each of us made a hands on project that we took home with us, along with supplies provided by Q.
There were five students altogether and we had a great time. The two hour class turned into three!
If you are interested in signing up for Q’s classes, check out her Facebook page. These classes are for women only.
