Happy Mondays: Batik - Shades of Indigo *** CANCELLED ***Book now
*** Unfortunately due to unforseen circumstances the workshop leader can no longer make the workshop this evening so we have had to make the decision to cancel it. Apologies for any inconvenience caused, refunds will be issued shortly. *** Batik – the art of patterning fabric with successive layers of wax resist and dye. Indigo dye is one of the most fascinating processes involving complete immersion of the cloth, coming out a vibrant shade of green before oxidisation turns it to the familiar shade of blue, ranging from subtle denim to rich, deep blues.
Students are invited to bring along old t-shirts and other items of clothing (must be made of natural fibres, so cotton is ideal) to transform using this ancient textile technique. Learners will be guided through all stages from design to completion.
All equipment, tools and inspirational materials are provided. Please wear old or protective clothing for this workshop.
