Fridays, September 1 – 29 (no class on September 15)
Watercolor batik is a fun alternative method to traditional batik painting that has been used worldwide for hundreds of years. In this four-day workshop, we will use Ginwashi rice paper instead of cloth, and watercolor paint instead of dye. This method is full of surprises. During this class we will first paint by following a design and then everyone will venture off on individual projects.
