What you'll do

Batik and Shibori are both culturally rich and intricately complex dyeing techniques from Asia. In this workshop, you will become a designer for a day! After choosing the preferred method, you will learn the process of designing and making batik or folding and dyeing textiles using the shibori methods. Batik is an ancient and famous wax-resit method of dyeing textiles in Asia that uses metal blocks or a small "pipe" like utensil to draw or block designs with hot wax. In this workshop, you will block or draw designs using melted wax on fabric to create patterns and designs, and you will then paint dye colors of your choice on the textiles. After the dyes dry, the fabric is washed in boiling water to remove the wax and reveal the original fabric color along with the new layer of design. You will then get to go home with a unique batik scarf or coffee tumbler that you designed and created yourself.
