Intro to Batik: Cloth Napkins
Taught by Julia Silver Gordon of Hiho Batik
Hiho Batik is an experiential retail store and art space, offering people of all ages one-of-a-kind products, in a mass-produced world.
In the Hiho Batik art space, our guests create Make-Your-Own Hiho products and participate in DIY classes taught by local artists and craftspeople.
*This class takes place in Hiho Batik's studio inside their store, located at 184 5th Avenue in Park Slope, Brooklyn.*
In this hands-on class, we'll learn the art of batik, a wax-resist dyeing technique, and will practice different techniques using wax and dye. We'll then use these techniques to create a set of four cloth napkins, perfect for your holiday table. (There will also be an option to purchase additional napkins, if you'd like!)
All materials are provided, but please note you'll have to come back approximately one week later to pick up your napkins! Learn more about batik in our peek behind the scenes.
Be sure to select your preferred session from the drop down menu on the next page! Class might be a little longer or shorter depending on the intricacy of your design.
