  • 6



Please note:  This workshop is the week before the regular meeting.

Registration opens on February 15 for AQG members and March 15 for non-members.

Learn to use traditional batik (beeswax resist dyeing) tools like Indonesian tjanting tools, metal Malaysian stamps, and hand carved Indian woodblocks to print, drip, draw, and paint with natural beeswax on cotton cloth.  Discover the beauty of a single layer batik dyed in the low-water immersion (LWI) style with fiber reactive dyes.  Each participant will make 1 yard of fabric.  During the workshop, you will wax and dye your fabric.  Each student will learn to apply the wax with a variety of tools, then learn to create a LWI dye bath for a single-color dye bath that has varying shades in it.  Instructions for dye washout and wax removal will be given for students to do at home.  Or, for $20.00 per yard, Waxon Studios will handle the removal for you.  This is an exciting and hands on workshop that will have you wanting to make lots more batik fabric!!
