Come Join an Artistic Day of Creativity: Pure Silk and Fine Food

Most of us love the look of fine hand-painted silks and enjoy the taste of fine foods, but we’ve never thought of mixing the two “delicious” art forms together at the same time.

On Thursday, July 21, fine artist, Barbara Rabkin, and I, the Boquete Gourmet, will join forces to present a full day of creativity for folks wishing to experience and to learn to create lovely works of arts in both fields.  Participants will design and paint a one-of-a-kind pure silk scarf and, at the same time, taste and learn to make several spectacular  and unusual gourmet dishes.

This all-day class will begin at 9:30 am at Kent’s Cantina in El Santuario, Boquete, with a “mini-brunch” of fine pastries, coffee and assorted teas.  Barbara will acquaint everyone with the “seri” procedures of designing and painting a fine pure silk scarf using delicate paints, the same medium of silk artists all over the world.

A full gourmet lunch will be served with a variety of fine wines. Recipes will be available throughout the day, and a couple of dishes will be prepared using the Boquete Gourmet Community Cookbook. This cookbook is available for ordering and mailing on this site.

Attendees will complete their fine scarf and prepare it for wearing, right down to the steaming and pressing.  The group should conclude this afternoon of tasting and creativity about 4:00 pm. 

Everyone will be able to return home with the knowledge of not only how to make and finish a fine work of art, but each participant will bring home a unique, hand-painted silk scarf, ready to wear or frame.

$70 fee includes a full day of events mentioned above, all materials and supplies, with lots of fun and camaraderie thrown in. Click July 21 on the calendar at the right to register now.

Barbara and I will be happy for you to come join us for our “Artistic Day of Creativity”, no experience needed!
