In this session you will learn how to do the ancient art of Batik. Batik is a textile surface pattern technique that's existed in many eastern cultures for hundreds of years and creates a distinct and attractive design. Using wax and specially made tools we'll make patterns on fabric that act as a resist to fabric paint that we'll apply on top of the wax.

Come with ideas of the kinds of pattern you'd like to do, pinterest board for inspo here:
