Batik is the ancient decorative art of creating designs on fabric using dyes along with a “resist”, such as melted bees wax. The oldest known examples are on silk screens in Japan, from the Sui Dynasty (AD 581-618). Today, batik is mostly associated with Indonesia, which maintains a vibrant culture of batik producers.

In this workshop, the student will learn how to use traditional batik dying methods to create a contemporary, personalized work of art on cotton cloth. The workshop will focus on the following skill building processes:

  • Focus on simple designs that exploit the spontaneous and organic nature of batik
  • Learn the essential ordering of building the design from lightest to darkest color

Build your individual style with the use of color and the unique effects available to you with this ancient decorative method.
