Contemporary Batik Techniques (ages 16+)


Batik is the ancient art of creating designs on cloth using wax and colored dyes. Join Cheryl Rogers-Tadevich, International Batik/Block Print artist in this creative workshop.  This is an opportunity to learn the methods to design your own Batiks using contemporary materials such as soy wax and GOLDEN Hi Flow acrylics, as well as traditional dyes and wax. Beautiful effects can be achieved through resist dyeing often resulting in amazing, unpredictable texture and tones.

Cheryl will guide you through a variety of techniques, using tools to apply wax and set colors.  Batik designs can be as complicated or simple as the artists desires. Enjoy the freedom and immediacy of work with wax and dyes on fabric in a painterly fashion.  No experience necessary.
