Teen Workshop: Vibrant World of Batik Ages 14-18

Let’s explore the world of textiles! In this Batik workshop, students will learn all about this ancient Indonesian art form - from its history to its modern day application. Students will choose their color schemes, design their own patterns, and plan out their textile techniques. They will explore fabric dyeing methods as well as learn how to use wax as a resist in order to give fabric that richly colored and antiquated finish that batik is known for. We will supply fabric and all necessary materials for this exciting workshop!
