|Recurring Event (See all)

One event on an unspecified date at 12:30pm

Eastport Arts Center (EAC), 36 Washington Street
Eastport, ME 04631 United States
+ Google Map

Eastport Arts Center will offer “Line, Shape and Rhythm On Cloth: Traditional Starch Batik Methods from Asia and Africa,” a workshop with Susan Lehnen, on Saturday, March 4, and Saturday, March 18, from 12:30-4:30 pm. The workshop will acquaint people with traditional methods of starch batik and provide an opportunity for experimentation and skill development. Called Adire Eleko in Africa and Norizome in Japan, these techniques create pattern by applying starch paste to cloth with a brush or stencil, then immersing the treated fabric in dye. When the paste is removed and cloth rinsed, a white figure is revealed against a dark ground. Starch batik can stand alone as a textile surface design method, and is very compatible with bound resist and itajime skills. Lehnen will be assisted by Fern Hilyard in teaching the medium.
