Silk Painting: To Resist Or Not To Resist, That Is The Question

April 5, 2018 – April 8, 2018

Kathy Goodson

This workshop answers the question every painter on silk eventually asks, “Do I use resist or not?” Painters, fiber artists, designers and quilters are invited to explore the current resists and the dynamic effects that result from their use. The workshop encompasses the steps of painting on silk. Students will discover which resists are better for the environment and personal health, and which require special use. Participants are encouraged to express their own unique style. No painting or fiber experience is required. Open to all skill levels.


Kathy Goodson lives within sight of the Appalachian Trail near Hot Springs, North Carolina, which inspires her botanical designs. She has been a silk painter for over 20 years honing her painterly style by studying with master silk painters. Goodson is a board member of the Silk Painters International and has exhibited in galleries, shows and exhibits throughout the U.S. Her fine art is in collections throughout the world.
