Learning Batik

The students and I took a trip to Charlotte's house. There we learned the process of batik, or dying fabric. Each student received one piece of cloth to wax. They then selected one of these various stamps. After allowing the wax to melt and become hot, they dipped their stamp in the wax and made patterns of wax on their fabric. I remember being a nervous wreck because I didn't want one of the students to get burnt by the wax. But, I did manage to make my own design.
