watercolour batik, Sunday, march 11/2018, Oshawa art association, gallery 67, Oshawa Ontario

Holiday Inn Oshawa, 1st floor 67 Simcoe Street North, Oshawa, Ontario

Sunday, March 11,  10am - 4:00pm

Watercolour batik combines two wonderful media - the brilliance and clarity of watercolour and the translucence of hot wax. Traditional batik is done with fabric and dye. In this workshop,  Japanese rice paper is used instead of fabric and watercolour paint in lieu of dye. Wax is used as a resist throughout the painting process. Japanese rice paper is lightweight and highly textured. There's a degree of unpredictability, imprecision and always a moment of high anticipation as the wax is removed from the rice paper, revealing the watercolour painting beneath. Learn the process and watch the magic. A materials fee covers the wax materials, tools, equipment and rice paper. Students need to bring their watercolour paints, palette and a couple of watercolour brushes. If you prefer to focus on learning just the batik technique (instead of drawing), a number of pre-drawn patterns are provided.
