Does Valentine's Day always look the same for you, a faux holiday comprised of doilies and cheesy sentimental greeting cards, stiff bouquets and chocolate hearts, and another bottle of cologne? This year, scrap the mundane and indulge in the unique, timeless art of water marbling. Give the gift of the Mayu Silk Art Experience!
1. Awesome Date for 2 Bring your loved one to our booth at the Huntington Pier to make a one-of-a-kind Valentine they'll never forget - their own hand painted design on luxurious 100% silk. Surf City U.S.A., with it's picturesque pier, sexy beach views, and the many shops and restaurants on Main Street are renowned as a romantic destination. Even sweeter is the fact that it's a 4-day weekend. We'll be spreading the love all weekend, Feb. 12-15.

2. Hallmark can't touch this!! Already made reservations for another Valentine's Day brunch? No worries. You can still spice up the day with a Mayu Silk Art Gift Certificate, redeemable at our booth, in our online store, or toward the cost of one of our super-fun workshops. If you need something more tangible, custom order an artisan scarf in our store.

3. Be SPECTACULAR this year!! Make a really BIG splash by surprising your sweetheart with the gift of a private Mayu Silk Art Party for his/her friends and family. We can't think of a more unique way to say, "I love you."
"Gel-Git" is a Turkish phrase meaning "back and forth," and is the name of the basic chevron-like water marbling design formed by pulling the rake, comb or stylus back and forth through the paint.
We hope that this phrase will also describe our relationship with you and the many other folks with whom we have enjoyed sharing this beautiful art form.
Please feel free to contact us at any time with your photos, ideas, questions, event inquiries, or custom orders.
