Description

The ancient art of using hot wax resist on silk fabric to create layers of transparent color is the process explored in this workshop.  Students will be introduced to the unique batik tools used to apply the wax such as the Indonesian tjanting, cjaps, and stencils as well as brushes and household implements.  The designs created by the tools are then dip dyed to create a light to dark effect often resulting in surprisingly intricate “crackled” patterns that are associated with batik work from afar. Students will make 2 scarves.

Silk pieces are ironed to remove the wax and steamed or dry cleaned for a finished look.
