Learn the ancient tradition of batik, an intriguing technique of applying wax resist on fabric to be overdyed. We will explore various application techniques and tools, with possible results ranging from intricate details, bold geometrics, to fields of abstract textures. In this 5 1/2 hour class, time will be given to practice techniques before creating an original design to suit each individual’s vision. You will leave with a set of practice swatches and a finished 22” square of organic cotton. Students will all leave class with a wearable bandana .
