Watercolor Batik Workshop
Create translucent watercolor on textured Japanese Paper
Artist/Instructor Judy Thompson
(for high school and adults)
Saturday, June 6: 9am to 2pm

Batik is a century old process of decorating cloth using wax and dye. Using a similar process, you will create beautiful translucent watercolor paintings on textured Japanese paper. Judy will demonstrate and instruct each step of this unique and fascinating process. Come join us for a fun, hands-on workshop. Adult learners of all levels are welcome.
The day will include a break for lunch.
