Artists Agus Ismoyo and Nia Fliam from Yogyakarta, Indonesia will hold a two day workshop in batik using indigo dyes. This workshop will take participants through a step by step experience of the batik process.
Ismoyo and Nia will share also some about the history, culture, and creative process imbued in batik as well as some movement to awaken the body as a tool in creativity. An introduction to equipment and materials used in the process and their safe use will be followed by hands on experience using the Indonesian canting tool or hand drawn batik (batik tulis) and handmade copper stamps (batik cap) to create individual pieces.
Participants can expect to come away with at least three batik pieces and a foundation for continuing exploration of the medium. Students can always make contact with Ismoyo and Nia in the future for technical guidance. An e-booklet will also be provided.
A $30 materials fee will need to be paid directly to Nia + Ismoyo the day of the workshop. Check or cash only.
