This workshop is about using the batik (Indonesian style wax resist painting) and rozome (Japanese style batik) wax and dye painting processes to create unique artwork on fabric that can be used on everyday household objects, clothing or works of art. Play with tjaps (Indonesian printing blocks) tjanting tools, brushes and other waxing techniques so that you have a variety of tools to create artwork that is uniquely yours. Students will work with environmentally friendly soy/beeswax and acid dyes for vivid colors. This workshop is great for silk painters.
