Shadows & reflections in Batik
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.
Eco Dye printing
Eco-print dyeing is a fascinating way of printing onto fabric. Using flowers and leaves from gardens and countryside, this is a direct contact printing method that allows the flora and foliage to give up their colours and patterns.
Peg looms and weaving sticks
Students will start by making a bag while learning about the warp and weft and trying out a variety of materials. Later they will learn to make patterns and pictures using hatching and shading.
What if.... less is more
Working within the restraints of simple materials and limited colour combinations let work grow and unfold in an exploratory workshop creating an array of surfaces to work with mixed media and stitch.
