Silk Scarves: Cork Binding & Marbling Technique with Acoatzin Torres


Acoatzin Torres is back this year to teach a new silk scarf dyeing technique.  In this workshop you will be hand painting a silk scarf, using cork and dye to create colorful and intricate patterns.


Acoatzin Torres is a multi-talented artist originally from Tabasco, Mexico.  He started dancing at the age of 4, and studied fashion and costume design in Mexico City. After moving to Virginia in 2004, he founded Monarca Dance Ensemble, teaching Mexican folk dance at area after-school programs and performing at schools with his students.  He also teaches aerial arts in Northern Virginia.  He has studied fabric surface design and fiber art since 2010 and now teaches various dyeing techniques and sells his innovative silk and wool creations.

Design and Wine events are from 7 to 9 p.m. Each event is $40 per person which covers wine, light snacks and supplies. Each event is limited to 25 participants. Registration is required with payment in advance.

Do I need any experience to participate in Design and Wine classes?

Absolutely not! We are looking for savvy women and men who want to share ideas and learn new things.

Do you require registering for Design and Wine and how do I sign up?

The only way to secure a spot in one of our Design and Wine classes is to pre-register on our website.  This allows us to make sure the class does not overfill and that everyone has materials and supplies!  You can sign up by viewing the events you want to attend.

What is your cancellation policy?

These classes are going to be so much fun; we have a no cancellation policy/no refund policy.  However, your reservations are transferable (space permitting), if we receive your request at least one week before the event, and reservations may be transferred only once. In the event, we do not have enough registrations to hold any class, your fee will be refunded or can be transferred to an upcoming class (space permitting).  We will reschedule any missed classes due to weather as quickly as possible.

Do you have an age limit?

Our age limit to participate in Wine and Design is 21 years old.  Please keep in mind that the law requires anyone who consumes alcoholic beverages to be 21 years of age or over.

What are the prices?

Design and Wine classes are $40 per person.  The price includes all supplies, wine and light snacks.

What do I need to bring?

You need to bring yourself, friends and snacks if you wish! Dress comfortably, but wear something you wouldn’t mind getting sacrificed in the name of art and fun!

At what time should I arrive for class?

Classes will begin at the time scheduled – 7:00 p.m. - so come 15 minutes earlier to grab your seat and get comfortable!
