Batik workshop planned Feb. 6

The Division of Continuing Education and Regional Development will hold a workshop on the ancient Indonesian art of batik, Tuesday, Feb. 6.

Participants will draw a design on white cotton fabric with melted wax. The piece will be dipped in fabric dye resistant to the wax, leaving a beautiful pattern behind. Participants will leave with a handcrafted, versatile piece of art.

The course will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. in the fourth floor art room of Marilyn Horne Hall at 2 Marilyn Horne Way. The cost is $35, and all materials are provided.
