Some of our lovely silk-painting colleagues from the USA kindly donated some of their work as prizes for a fund raising raffle, since they could be with us. We decided to raffle them over the weekend so that everyone had a chance to own them.
"Baby" by Daniel Jean-Baptiste
One of his iconic signed original artworks, this is 12" x 15" and comes with a certificate of authentication.
Printed Scarf by Karen Sistek (detail from Brown Heron)
This is a beautiful printed scarf 45cm x 180cm on heavy silk with printed signature, with a detail of one of her large original works.
Karen also sent a lovely diamante brooch that says "SILK ARTIST", in silvery metal. The brooch measures roughly 3 iches across and is our final raffle prize.
All funds raised were used to offset the costs of running the Festival and reimburse the National Guild for their kind loan.
