Hand Painted Florals for Textiles

by Grace Bonney

This summer I promised myself that I would spend at least one weekend a month learning a new skill. July is half-way over and I still haven’t been through a full class, but I think I’ve finally found the one that will make me get off my couch and into the classroom. The incredible Helen Dealtry is teaching a hand-painted florals-on-textiles class at Nicolette Owen‘s studio in Brooklyn (Sunday, August 5th). In addition to the basics of painting florals for textiles, you’ll be able to print your work on beautiful fabric swatches. The price may place it above some budgets, but I think a specialized and highly beautiful skill like this is definitely worth investing in. The results are so professional and so elegant – it makes me want to hand-paint all the pillows and chair backs in my home. Click here for more information and to register. Hopefully I’ll see some of you there! xo, grace
