Carol Higgs has been practicing the ancient Indonesian wax-resist dyeing technique for three decades. She defines batik as being like tie-dye, but a little more sophisticated. The trick is to start with a photo or picture, a plan, several pieces of fabric, wax and dye. She drips colored wax on fabric in the intended design. Once the wax hardens, the design on the cloth takes her work in exciting directions. She starts with the lightest dye colors first and then moves to darker shades to create a controlled tie-dye effect. Trained as an art teacher, she has taught in public schools and has given hundreds of classes to students of all ages. This will be a fun demonstration not to be missed!
