Batik is an ancient resistance technique originating from Indonesia. Learn about the history of this process and the steps involved in creating these patterns or designs on natural fabrics. This is a 2-hour hands-on workshop with detailed instruction on how to utilize gutta glue works as a resisting medium and the process of using an indigo dye bath to magically reveal the design.
During this class, the following items will be provided to practice dyeing:
-Natural Cloth Banner (8" x 11")
-Wood Hanging Rod
If you are interested in bringing your own fibers to batik, please email us in advance. We will try to accommodate all requests.
