$47.00 ($35.00 TUITION + $12.00 MATERIAL FEE)
Create a scene of the Chinese Venice, Suzhou while exploring the ancient art of batik. Fabric, waxes, dyes, tools and expertise will all be provided by instructor Susan Metzger. On day one you will begin the process of transferring your design to fabric, and day two you will complete the waxing and dyeing process, finishing with a ready-to-frame batik. Class size is small to allow plenty of personal attention. Time permitting, a second batik is possible. All levels welcome.
Susan Metzger is a Palisade artist with more than twenty years 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.
