YAY!!! I’ve successfully taught two “Intro to Batik” classes at Ornamentea in downtown Raleigh, and everyone has had a great time!!! Including me! It’s so much fun to see what people create!!
You can go to the Ornamentea.com/Classes site online. Just scroll down to the Batik Basics portion.
But for your convenience, I’ve added the direct links to each class date below!
Here are the dates…
Tuesday, July 15, 5:30-8:30

Yes!!! Finally, I got my act together, and I’m going to teach a little Intro to Batik class at Ornamentea in June!
The class dates are June 10 and June 28. The project(s) is to make 1 or 2 (*depending on each person’s personal pace*) 11-inch silk handkerchiefs. They have a hand-rolled hem, so they can stand alone as a pocket square, or you could put it in a little frame. You could also make a decorative pillow!!
It’s a good starting point to get everyone familiar with how Batik is made, and some of the tools you can use to create something unique and your own!! Materials are provided.
We’ll be using soy wax, fiber-reactive dye, tjanting tool, brushes, and some other do-dads I like to experiment with!
Space is limited, and you can sign up online. Here are the links to the two class dates: June 10 class
Here we go!
Friday, from 6 until about 8:30 or so, I will be at my NEW space in The Carter Building, at 22 Glenwood Avenue, Studio 11C. It’s really easy to find… Just follow the stairs in the parking lot up to the pink door on the left! I’ve strung some holiday lights on the railing, so you really really cannot miss it.
This building is chock full of amazing artists, so you’ll have plenty of other artists to check out while you’re there. The Carter Building is on page 2 of the First Friday Raleigh map: http://www.godowntownraleigh.com/_files/docs/final-july-december-first-friday-map-and-guide.pdf
On Saturday, from 11-4, I will be at the Carrboro ArtsCenter for Elf: A Holiday Craft Fair!! It was a pretty phenomenal turnout last year, and thoroughly look forward to it this year!! https://www.facebook.com/events/207812176063134/
Then Sunday!! From 12-5, I will be at 410 S. Boylan for the Boylan Heights Artwalk! Always a Raleigh favorite, it’s in its 21st year!! Admission is free! There will be some food for purchase, too, if you think you might be there a while! 🙂
