Embark on a journey into the intricate world of batik with a unique perspective from an American artist who honed their skills under a 5th generation woodblock batik master in Gujarat, India. Join us for an enlightening experience where you will learn about the artistry of the blocks themselves, witness a demonstration on using them to print repeated designs in beeswax on cotton fabric, and receive a quick lesson on immersion dyeing with fiber-reactive dyes.


This colorful and culturally rich lecture promises to ignite your passion for creating your own batik fabric. Our instructor, Jessica Kaufman, owner of WAXON Batik & Dye Studio in Asheville, NC, specializes in classes and workshops in fabric dyeing. She teaches batik classes year-round in her studio.


As a bonus, indulge in a unique experience at the instructor's trunk show, featuring her available one-of-a-kind fabrics dyed by hand in Asheville, available for purchase after class. Take home a piece of the vibrant artistry and skills imparted during this captivating lecture.
