Batik on Cotton

Days & Times:
Thursdays - 6pm-8pm
All Levels Welcome
Studio C

During this batik course, Gustavo will introduce methods developed for easy wax removal, low water consumption during clean-up, and creating designs. The class will use Gustavo’s patterns, but he will also explain to students how to design and make their own patterns. Single, double, and even tricolor patterns on cotton will be explored, using reactive dyes for vibrant colors. Once students get an understanding of the process, they can then produce prints up to 3 yards (48″ to 54″ wide) on cotton fabric. Bring rubber gloves to protect the skin from washing in hot water. Experience is helpful, but not necessary.
