Workshop: Watercolor Batik Chickadee

This program is sold out. Please call 612-871-4907 to be added to a waitlist.


Try your hand at watercolor batik, a fun and modern twist on the original Javanese technique of batik, which uses wax to produce designs on fabric. Led by instructor Kim Gordon, we’ll work from an image traced onto rice paper and then use melted wax and watercolor to create a final work of art. Each piece will be a unique representation of a chickadee perched on a branch, a familiar Minnesota sight. This is a great opportunity for students who don’t feel “artsy” but are excited to learn about an unusual art form while creating a beautiful work of art that reflects our northern landscape.

A $10 materials fee is payable to the instructor.
