eco • batik was full of creative students from Thomas More High School last week! Art teacher, Jodi Brzezinski, arranged a field trip (a two block walk) for her fiber arts class to come learn batik at eco•batik.
I am so impressed with how prepared the girls were with their beautiful designs. Ms. B gave them great instruction on how to prepare their pattern for batik. I am even more impressed with how well the girls worked with the tools and wax. Wax is a very unforgiving material that drips and bleeds into places where you don't want it to go. Learning how the wax performs is a big part of batik and Ms. B's class did an outstanding job!
You will be able to see the finished batik's on Gallery Night weekend, October 21st and 22nd at eco•batik!
