Have you been interested in trying a new painting process but have been afraid to learn? 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 silk and other fabrics that can be used on everyday household objects, clothing or works of art! Play with printing blocks, drawing brushes, and other waxing techniques so that you have a variety of tools to create artwork that is uniquely yours. We will work with environmental friendly soy/beeswax and acid based dyes for vivid colors. Good for experienced silk painters, fiber artists and artists who would like to work in fiber so they can add new techniques and ideas to their toolkit.
