Have you wanted to try batik dyeing? Learn various methods of using wax as a resist in fabric dyeing to create patterns and designs on fabric. Students will learn to create patterns with stamps using African technique and to paint designs with batik tools and dye using Asian technique. We will mix colors using pre-mixed fiber reactive dyes and soy wax as a resist for the batik. Creating designs with wax and easy wax removal will also be demonstrated. Students will be able to bring in 100% cotton pillow cases, fabric sheets and stretcher bars to create a wall piece. No previous dyeing experience necessary. Wear old clothes, as we will get messy!
