During this fun textile workshop you'll learn a unique technique for creating your own batik-style print. Batik is a technique of wax-resist dyeing applied to cloth.

To achieve the distinctive look of batik, without the complexity of the hot-wax method - we use a popular alternative method. With glue as a resistance and acrylic paint acting as the dye, we create a beautiful effect that is both easy and fun.

What you will learn:

  • How to plan your design and create your own batik-style textiles.

  • How to create a resist on your fabric using glue instead of wax.

  • How to apply acrylic paint to add color and texture to your cloth.

  • How to rinse and finish your piece.

Participants will leave with their finished cotton bandana to wear, and the knowledge needed to design and create more pieces on their own.
