— about this workshop —
Led by multidisciplinary creative Coelina Edwards of Shop See Phillips, this three-hour workshop will pop at the #BBATX HQ on May 29 from 6 to 9 PM. During this creative experience, Edwards will introduce you to indigo dye and various resist techniques that can be used to add patterns on fabric. Each participant will have a 15”x 24” 100% cotton wall hanging, jute string, wax and clips to use to create their very own wall hanging. Some of the techniques learned during this three-hour experience will include batik, shibori, and tye-dye. You'll be able to utilize all techniques or just one for your completed wall hanging. :)
PS: Feel free to bring an additional white item from home that may need a second life and be a part of the zero-waste fashion initiative.
All skill levels welcome.
