Petroglyph Impressions

Get a taste of the batik process while creating your own petroglyph inspired artwork. Petroglyph images like Kokopelli, and his many friends, are easy and fun images perfect for the splash and crackle of this ancient resist technique. Return students who have taken the class and want to create batiks can bring different images to work with. And Susan will have more images for you to use. 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 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.
