Create + Sip: Batiked and Dyed Fiber Mandala

March 9 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Create + Sip: Batiked and Dyed Fiber Mandala
with artist Cheryl VanderMolen Neway
March 9, 4p-6p
Ages 13+




Join us every month for a new Create + Sip experience! Our afternoons of wine and fun offer more than just painting. Each Create + Sip is taught by one of Workhouse’s talented studio artists, so we play with lots of techniques, plus fiber, glass and clay. You’ll have a great time creating (and sipping), resulting in a unique piece of art made by you. Check our Events listings regularly to see what we’ll have next.

Batik is an art form that uses wax as a resist to create line drawings in dyed material. During this Create + Sip, Workhouse fiber artist Cheryl VanderMolen Neway will show you how to batik a mandala symbol onto cotton fabric with soy wax. You’ll also learn how to use dyes to create a sunburst effect in the background. When you’re done, you’ll have a beautiful piece of wearable art that you can take home with you (or turn it into a wall hanging – it’s your choice!). PLEASE NOTE: While we provide aprons, dyes can easily splash – and they are permanent! Wear clothes and shoes that can get messy.
