Gallery to Offer One-Day Batik Class

Batik Class (Iris)
Pat Smelkoff
One-Day Project Workshop
June (date to be announced)

Batik is a wax resist process. Wherever the hot wax is placed, paint cannot enter the Ginwashi rice paper. The waxing process is wax, paint watercolor, dry; wax, paint watercolor, dry while using different sheets of the same pattern for wax and color placement.

At the end of the day, students will finish and take home a beautiful Iris batik to frame.
