Have fun, learn new skills, and explore your artistic potential while working in a professional studio.
This is an introduction class to the beautiful ancient Indonesian art form of Batik. Students will create practice pieces painting directly on fabric, then they will create a practice piece dip dying their fabric, and then they will use both processes together on their fabric designs. Students will use unbleached muslin fabric for their projects.
Batik is a process where artists use wax to keep their fabric dyes from moving into unwanted places in their designs. Wax is used to arrest certain hand painted areas or dipped dyed areas of their composition. Wax is used to protect certain portions of your design from unwanted contamination of other fabric dyes or dip dyes. Wax is used to create the crackle effect only seen in the Batik medium.
