Batik is the ancient decorative art of creating designs on fabric using dyes along with a resist such as melted beeswax.

This class will introduce students to the process of batiking – applying melted wax to fabric using specialized tools and brushes then submerging the waxed fabric in wet dyes. The waxed areas resist the dye, creating beautiful crackle or veining patterns on the fabric.

Students will use traditional batik dyeing methods to create contemporary works of art on cotton cloth, including napkins, placemats, garments, window hangings, and more!

VisArts will provide materials for batiking napkins, placemats, and wall hangings; students are welcome to bring garments.

Please use the Notes section on the registration form to list accommodations needed during the class.

Registration is partially underwritten by a grant from the Windgate Foundation.

Classes require a minimum enrollment of four students. If classes must be cancelled due to low enrollment, students will be informed one week prior to the start of the class and issued a full refund.
