What a fabulous day. Carol Page, a member of our quilt group and an art teacher, rented her classroom from the secondary school that she teaches in and organised a batik workshop yesterday. It was lovely to be in such a large room with high work benches and plenty of equipment. I think we were all beginners but there was some lovely work produced by the end of the day. I finished up with this little fish which is about 6 inches square, but on the way to that worked on two samples:
This was in order to get used to the rate of flow of wax from the chantings. I was pleased with the clarity of these images on cotton.
We also worked on a really big piece on a rather rough calico which can be made into a shopping bag. I think it was about 24" square:
It's not completely ironed out or washed yet - that's a job for today!
Thanks Carol for a day of instruction, fun and cake!
