Marbling and Batik on Fabric
Internationally renown Fiber Artist Lynda Brothers is offering a special and unique 2-day workshop/class combining marbling and batik.
In this two day workshop we will work with the techniques of batik design and marbling on fabric in a totally unique and individually creative way. The artistic combination of the two methods adds depth, movement, and a textured look to any design, abstract or realistic, and can be applied to a variety of fabrics. The batik designs will involve Indonesian waxing and dying techniques on silk and cotton, which will be steamed to set the dyes. The marbling involves floating thin paints on a thickened water base which are then manipulated into patterns or swirls and printed onto the surface of the fabric. There will be a maximum of 6 students, minimum of 3 with several marbling baths available. Future classes will be offered for more advanced techniques.
Class: 10am to 4:30pm, and will take place over two days. Call for new dates, or call Lynda to request days for you and your friends.
