Intro to Batik: Wax REsist Workshop Notes
Today I am thrilled to share some outcomes and photos from our Intro to Batik: Wax Resist workshop that was created and instructed by Lindsey Fout of Last Chance Textiles. You might have read our previous interview with her here. Let me just say that Lindsey is an expert in batik, so I highly recommend taking this workshop in person because you come away with the knowledge, experience, fiber artwork, so much more. It is comparable to a beginner's level university class, so artists and designers that have a serious interest would benefit from it.
For all of you who would like to join us in the future, or possibly begin some experimentation at home, I took a few notes that I will help to guide you.
To get started making your very own batiks, you will need a natural fiber and all of the supplies listed below:Lindsey told us that traditionally the tjanting is made from copper and that is because it conducts heat better than other metals.
Keep reading to see a quick demo of how to use the tjanting along with the gorgeous batik results!
