Fall Fiber Arts Day
Join us Saturday, October 6, 2018 at The Retreat at Pointer's Ridge and learn Crayon Batik.
Crayon batik is a quick and easy batik technique using melted crayons to paint color directly onto fabric. After coloring, the fabric is gently crumpled to make spider web cracks in the wax and then dyed in a dark rinse. Finally, the wax is ironed out.
Materials will be provided; however, donations of old crayons and larger art brushes are welcome for use in the class.
Please wear old clothes as we will be working with melted crayon and India ink.
Doors open at 9:30
Class begins promptly at 10:00 am
Lunch will be potluck
Members fee: $5
Nonmembers fee: $15
Bring your knitting or other project to work on during the time for socializing after the class. Or if you just want to enjoy a beautiful day at the retreat, bring your own fiber art project to work on while we create batik.
