Get a taste of the batik process while creating your own petroglyph inspired artwork. Kokopelli, and his many friends, are easy and fun images perfect for the splash and crackle of this ancient resist technique. Experiment with paint brushes, traditional tjantings and kaps (metal stamps). Students will create two images, using wax, dyes and cotton fabric. And at the end of the afternoon, the mystery of batik will be resolved and students will have two pieces to frame or use as wearable art.
Susan Metzger is a Palisade artist with more than twenty-year’s experience working with batik. A member of the international Batik Guild, she has studied on her own and in Indonesia. Last year Susan taught four batik workshops after a 16 year hiatus. Susan’s August and September classes at the Blue Pig sold out. So this second event is being offered in Mesa, Colorado.
