Multi-Day Intensive: Batik Art: Painting with Wax

During this hands-on workshop we will explore and play with one of the oldest textile design techniques, batik, to create unique and beautiful pieces of fabric! You will learn to work with wax and various resist mediums, making your own wax brush and painting layers of wax and dye as they translate images to fabric. We will discover how the mixing and application of dyes can create subtle nuances in our creations. We will create and use stamps and stencils, experiment with adding layers of textile paints and embellishments as well as discharging (removal of color). This class will have you producing colorful celebrations of fabric and sharing ideas and experimentation with your fellow students.
