Last weekend, the CCC hosted talented lettering artist Carol Pallesen from Reno, Nevada. (Carol doesn't have a website yet, but just Google her name and see what you come up with.) She taught a workshop called "Batik Cards". (Batik is a method of dyeing fabric, in which parts of the cloth not intended to be dyed, are covered with removable wax).
I've always wanted to learn batik because of the bright colors and wild patterns that one usually sees in this process. Carol made it easy by applying the technique to paper, which was a great way to introduce it to beginners.
The results were simply breathtaking. Everyone did such beautiful work! Unfortunately, I did not bring my camera so I don't have the step-by-step process to show you. I'm hoping to get some images from a friend, but until then, here are some of my finished pieces.
