Batik is the ancient decorative art of creating designs on fabric using dyes along with a resist such as melted bee’s wax. This class will introduce students to the process of brushing or applying melted wax to fabric using specialized tools and brushes. After application the waxed fabric is then submerged in wet dyes and the waxed areas resist the dye creating designs on the fabric. These fabrics are recognized for their crackle or veining patterns that appear in the design.

In this series students will learn how to use traditional batik dyeing methods to create contemporary works of art on cotton cloth. Design your own fabrics using these techniques on a variety of fabrics including napkins, placemats, garments, window hangings and more! VisArts will provide all materials for batiking napkins, placemats and wall hangings, but students may bring their own garments as well.


Registration for this series 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.
