Chinese Silk Painting is an ancient technique dating back 2000 years. Artisans of the Imperial Court delicately applied colored pigment to silk cloth. Today, hand painted silk can be found around the world and is considered a beautiful luxury. At ASP and Company we love to merge modern design with ancient artisanal techniques and we are thrilled to share this beautiful art form with you. We will demonstrate the process of modern silk painting with ASP and Company artist Kaveri Singh on Saturday, October 13 at 2pm and Monday, October 15 at 2pm in our suite at Market Square Top floor T-814.
