Batik Workshop

Level: All

Instructor: Jan Creelman

Explore the magic of this Far Eastern technique of decorating fabric using hot liquid wax and fibre-reactive dyes. Students will explore various traditional and modern techniques of methods of applying wax, creating texture, and applying colour, along with creating layered colour effects. Designs can be purely abstract or pictorial, and the technique can be applied to cloth or paper, making this a very versatile art form.

Materials List:

Newspapers, hairdryer, images and ideas for inspiration, and an iron and watercolour brushes if possible.

100% cotton fabric in black or white will be available to purchase ($17/m). Any paper or fabric provided by students needs to be 100% COTTON. Dye is permanent, so please dress accordingly.
