Batik Watercolor Workshop with Ryan Fox
Saturday 11/11 & Sunday 11/12
10 AM - 4 PM each day
$250 for the weekend
Learn a new painting technique using the batik method with watercolor. This class is suitable for both beginner and experienced painters with little or no watercolor experience. You'll will create a 12"x16” batik painting in the class. Watercolor batik is the process of using traditional watercolor paint and wax to create unique and beautiful batik-style paintings on Japanese rice paper. This process is similar to an age old technique where melted wax is applied to fabric as a resist and then the fabric is dipped in dye. You will begin the process with a drawing and then learn to create highlights and shadows, and how to mask areas of the project with wax. Irons, electric skillets, newspapers, wax, and brushes for applying wax will be provided. You will need to bring watercolor paints, brushes, and suitable clothing (wax does drip and sometimes ends up on clothing). You are invited to use the reference photographs provided for their drawings or are you may bring a high contrast photograph or line drawing to transfer to rice paper.
