Dye your own custom fabric with organic and geometric patterns in Fabric Patterning with Wax Resist.
Author and textile designer Malka Dubrawsky shows you just how accessible the ancient art of batik can be as she demonstrates how to work with wax resists. You'll create patterns using tools as diverse as traditional tjaps (stamps), common cardboard, bell peppers and carrots! Malka also demonstrates overdying and discharging techniques that make complex-looking patterns easy to achieve.
This class is perfect for anyone interested in dyeing fabric. Beginners, as well as quilters and sewers who want to create unique fabrics will be able to use these techniques on readymade clothing or bolts of fabric.
