ABOUT MODERN BATIK:

Modern Batik is an updated technique that combines using dyes, wax and paintbrushes to produce vivid works of art. It allows the artist to create detailed, refined images with dramatically enhanced tonality, shading and depth by applying wax and dyes on fabric. This modification adds increasing background depth, broadness and a richer palette of colours to batik painting

In this 2-day workshop, you will learn the basic steps in the process of Modern Batik art called fragmenting. Previous art experience is not required. You will leave with a finished piece of work and the desire to create more!
