A fun day at QuiltCon today. I trekked offsite to a church where our batik dying class was being held. Our instructor, the talented Malka Dubrawsky, offered instruction on wax resist (batik) fabric printing.
Using common fruits and veggies dipped in hot wax, we decorated our fabrics and placed them in vats of dye. We also learned about dye discharging, which was fascinating. Toward the end of the class we used traditional batiking tools used for centuries.
Off to a Modern Quilt Guild leaders meet and greet. I've logged a lot of miles today.
