Fabric Patterning with Wax Resist

with Malka Dubrawsky
In Fabric Patterning With Wax Resist, Malka Dubrawsky teaches the ancient art of batik with a modern spin.

Dye your own custom fabric with organic and geometric patterns. Malka Dubrawsky teaches the ancient art of batik, working with wax resists and creating patterns with tools as diverse as traditional tjaps (stamps), cardboard and even carrots! You'll also learn 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 ready-made clothing or bolts of fabric. Add some fun to your fabric stash today by enrolling in Fabric Patterning with Wax Resist!

"I loved the class! I've taken a couple of dyeing classes before and this one differs a bit, so it's good to get another perspective. The instructor was clear and made it very easy to understand. I ordered her two books even before I finished the class. Taking classes thru Craftsy makes me really happy - I loved the experience of this class!"
