BATIK

Batik is a technique of drawing and painting onto fabric with wax, dyeing the fabric, and then ironing out the wax. Most of your dorm room tapestries and sarongs are prints based on batik designs. We sell white and unbleached muslin by the yard for dyeing, and provide the melted wax, tools, irons, and dye. You can combine this technique with sewing to create custom designed pillows, clothes, etc. Tips and tricks for crackle dyes, color mixing, getting the wax out, or anything else can be provided by our Batik Area Coordinator.
