SA Creates: Modern Batik Art - Expressive Explorations (Doors Open)
1859 Kingston Road
Join Scarborough Arts during our Doors Open event in learning about Modern Batik art during this two-session workshop. Explore the unique Modern
Batik technique where wax is applied to fabric using water-soluble
dyes. The effect that can be achieved through resistant dyeing often
results in amazing, unpredictable textures and tones. Modern Batik
designs can be complicated or as simple as the artist desires. The main
goal when working with Modern Batik art, is to enjoy
the medium and allow the versatility of wax and dyes to reveal itself
gradually on fabric. The Modern Batik technique is fun and easy to
experiment with, come join the adventure! Participants must be able to attend both sessions.
