What you'll do

Come alone or bring your friends to discover the joy and magic of painting on water at the world-famous Mayu Silk Art Studio. This experience provides everything you need to create your very own custom hand-painted silk (or bamboo rayon*) scarf to take home and enjoy for years to come, or give as a unique heartfelt gift.

After a warm "Hello" from your hosts, Star and Phil, you will enjoy a brief intro to Mayu Silk Art and the ancient art of water marbling, as well as an entertaining demonstration. Then the fun really starts, as a skilled artisan guides you step-by-step through the process of creating your one-of-a-kind design(s).

1. Browse the many silk scarves on display in the studio, to get an idea of the types of designs, patterns, and motifs that inspire you.
2. Choose your own colors from a wide selection (we recommend 2-8 colors), and apply drops of paint to the surface of the water in a large tray.
3. Use various tools to swirl the paint into intricate designs.
4. Watch as your finished design is instantly transferred to a luxurious silk scarf!
5. Take your finished item with you to hang dry, iron, and enjoy for years to come.

Bring a camera - this art is as much fun to watch as it is to do!

All ages and abilities welcome!
Perfect for individuals, families and groups up to 30.
Dress casual. Aprons & gloves will be provided.

I booked this experience for my family and we all had a fantastic time. Phil is a great host and Star & Rita were great in guiding us to make our designs. We brought food and drinks and felt well accommodated. I would highly recommend this activity to anyone, no artistic skill necessary to have fun and take home a beautiful piece of work!

We had so much fun! It is one of most amazing programs for things to do. I will definitely do this again. Our group went to dinner after and talked about this experience and several who live in the area are wanting to go back with other groups. All I can say is go for it, you will be very happy you did! Phil was my guide and instructor, I learned so much from him. Star was just as amazing. I want to make a special trip back to CA for a 3 day class! Thank you all for a great time.

It was a FUN “hands on” experience to create a “one-of-kind” work of art! You don’t need to have a background in the arts or painting to have a real blast! The teacher was so patient, encouraging, knowledgeable, and fun!! whole heartedly recommend to say YES, YES, YES, and go do this!

This was a great experience for our 6 year old companion! You will be blown away by the beautiful creations that can be made. Hosts were wonderful and patient. You’ll go home with a very special gift. I’d be happy to do this again!

This experience was incredible!! Book this! I had so much fun learning from Star and her partner! It was like meditating and creating at the same time. Take their advice and just let your inner child play without too much judgment. You’ll gain so much more from it at the end! I can wait to wrap my hair in my beautiful scarf! Thank you!!
