Arts council to hold batik workshop

A Wax Crayon Batik Workshop will be held March 10-12.  Tallahatchie Arts Council member Rebecca Browning will lead the class each evening from 5:00-8-00 at the Art House, 205 Highland Street.  The workshop fee is $60.00.  All participants, ages 17 and up, are welcome.

Members of the workshop will work toward designing and completing an 18″x24″ cloth batik using non-traditional methods whereby melted crayon or wax is painted onto cloth. The cloth is dipped into a dye bath and the wax is ironed out in the final step. A reverse method of batik will also be taught as an alternative technique.

Completed batiks will be featured and exhibited at the New Albany Home and Garden Show Luncheon in April.

To sign up for the workshop, call Rebecca at 316-6523 or Bethany Dalton at 316-2689, or you can sign up at Mimi’s Bookstore or the museum, by March 3 to ensure time for sufficient supplies.  Organizers will need lots of old newspapers and Crayola (24 count) non-washable crayons. (5 boxes)
