Investigating Silk

As a follow up for our trip to see the Travelling The Silk Road exhibition at the National Museum of Australia we had some hands on investigation. I just happened to have some silk moth cocoons and various bi-products of the silk making process on hand in my art stash. We also tried out silk painting.
