Next Workshop: Batik Basics

My next workshop is coming up in a couple of weeks on Saturday April 30th! The focus is on the batik process allowing you choose what you want to create...a banner, a scarf or art flags for example! The description is below. Go to www.suzannedrown.com for more information.

Batik Basics
Batik is the ancient art process of “writing” or painting with hot wax. In this day-long workshop you will have the opportunity to create your own batik designs and learn about wax-resist techniques, including painting or drawing on fabric with melted soy wax. You will also learn dye painting techniques to color your fabric.

Teens and adults welcome.

Date: Saturday April 30
Location: So Po Art Studios, South Portland, ME
Time: 10am-4pm
Fee: $75 + supplies (approx $10)

Once you register, I will send a short list of additional materials for you to bring from home: scissors, t-shirt, extra fabric, etc. Please bring a lunch.
