This course will teach you the traditional (and a few not so traditional) methods of the ancient art of batik. We will not be using soy wax but paraffin, bees wax, or a combination of the two along with Procion MX dyes. These five lessons are a combination of two batiking courses Marjorie taught at Quilt University with the addition of video so you get a bird's eye view of how she works. The lessons will encourage you to look at art making, fabric designing, and perhaps life itself in a little bit of a different manner. This could be the springboard you have needed to bring something unique and exciting into your quilting projects. Are you in a creative slump? Try your hand at batiking and see if that doesn’t trigger your brain to bigger and bolder color and designs!
