This class has two different time slot options for the same date.  Only register for the time slot you will attend.

Time slot 1: 10am-Noon Time slot 2:  2-4pm.

JAMIE KIRKELLMy life changing experience brought me to the art of painting on silk. From 1966 to 1969 I was a United States Peace Corps Volunteer in the Luzon Mountains of the Philippines. Here I developed my strong interest in orchids and orchid collecting. Upon finishing my Peace Corps program I went to Java and apprenticed under Indonesia Batik Master Bambang Oetoro. This experience has proven to be the major influence in my life and work.Upon returning to the United States I opened a silk painting studio in New York City and worked with two exceptional artists. As a studio our works grew exponentially and our paintings sold at galleries and museum gift shops throughout the United States and Israel. Today I specialize in capris, leggings, large floral paintings and silk and poly chiffon scarves.Recommendations”That was quite a workshop we had at Daniel Stowe, It really stands out—I think it was one of the best workshops/experiences I’ve ever worked with, and having the exhibit with it was wonderful.
