Upcoming Batik Workshop: Saturday, June 9th

Batik is a sensual and organic process. A molten mixture of beeswax and paraffin is applied to fabric to resist dyes. Layers of wax and dyes are alternately applied by brush or immersion until the painting is complete. The wax is removed by placing the fabric between layers of paper and ironing repeatedly.
The wax melts out into the paper. My paintings often require thirty or more layers of wax and dye.
Learn the art of batik in this all day workshop. I will teach you the art of drawing and painting on fabric with wax and dyes.
Each student will bring at least one pencil drawn design on a pre-washed piece of cotton fabric. Over a light breakfast, we will discuss the origins of batik and its many different styles. We will go over your design you have brought and refine it, if need be. Then we will begin! Click here to register.
