Many of you have had the opportunity to work with Els at previous workshops at FibreWorks or other venues. Els is a highly respected international artist and teacher and this masterclass provides a great opportunity to explore in depth, the techniques of working with wax on cloth and on paper, incorporating various dye/wax/print techniques to create unique art pieces.
Els is available to return to FibreWorks in May 2013 to provide a “master class” in the art of batik. This would be a 3-day session. Els has given us a general description of how she would structure the class:
Masterclass working with wax and dye
Each student will work on her own theme.
Participants will be encouraged to develop a design from inspiration.
There will be exercises on color and design: these exercises will take one hour each day.
Subjects are: focal point, balance, picture frame, foreground/background , complimentary colors.
We will look at the contrasts of colors as in the color theory from Johannes Itten.
