We will discuss how these panels are created in a cooperative process that is led by the artists. These handcrafted panels can be used to create both traditional and art quilts, home décor, clothing and more. Bring a batik panel that you already own or purchase one from Artistic Artifacts (a large selection will be available to you the day of the class), several coordinating fabrics and we will brainstorm ideas and begin your piece. Student supply list to be provided in advance.”  $40 workshop fee

Evening Lecture: “Batik Adventure” Travel through Indonesia with Judy Gula! The presentation begins with a 35-minute computer slide show including a wealth of photos of Indonesia culture and the many batik processes. With these illustrations, a discussion will be led on how Indonesian fabrics are created, including beautiful hand-drawn batik panels, batik fabric yardage, and sarongs. At the conclusion of the slideshow, your group will have a variety of batik fabrics and other Indonesian textiles to see and handle. A mini trunk show of art quilts that have been created with these wonderful batiks and panels will also be included.
