Monday, February 13, 2012 - Oxbow Art Class Teaches Ancient Art Of Batik Feb. 18Batik is an ancient craft of decorating cloth with wax and dye. Thought to have originated in the Orient, this method of dying, painting and decorating is now popular and appreciated around the globe. Part of the attraction of batik is the simplicity -- you do not have to be an artist to achieve beautiful results. Join the Oxbow Eco-Center Saturday, Feb. 18 to learn the ancient art of batik and bring home a beautiful masterpiece created by you.
Debbie Perdue and Barbara Fuller from the Treasure Coast Art Association will help you explore your creative side through batiking. You will be applying wax with various techniques, then using paint and/or dyes to complete your projects on both paper and cloth.
The cost of this class is $20 and includes all supplies. Class times are 10 a.m. – noon for adults (15 and up) and 1:30 - 3:30 p.m. for children (9 – 14). Because we will be working with hot wax, parents should take this into consideration when enrolling their child or be there to assist. Space is limited, so please call the Oxbow Eco-Center to register at 772-785-5833 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
