Monday 27th July to Thursday 30th July

Using the designs nature creates we will explore the exciting marks and effects created by using different types of resist - Batik (hot wax), brushable wax resist, oil pastels, candles, and stencils.With tissue, paper and fabric as the base you will work with the resists, inks and bleach and dyes. You will explore the use of a wide range of traditional and non traditional tools to apply the hot wax. Many samples will be developed as well larger pieces. Some of the papers can be used to develop collaged images and designs by cutting, tearing, selecting and composing. The work will be suitable for further development by adding stitch, and students may wish to bring a sewing machine.
There will be a materials cost of £10 to cover inks, dyes, tissue, wax, paper, fabric, wax resists, oil pastels, acrylic .
