Learn the ancient art of batik, in its traditional method as well as new variations, from two teachers who love to share their knowledge and experience in the process. Create and develop designs for use in quilts, wearables or wall hangings; functional or decorative pieces; anything made from fabric. And, you need not know how to draw! Intermediate or advanced students may choose to work on their own projects, with assistance, advice and encouragement from the instructors. Add another dimension to your knowledge and fiber art projects. It’s an adventure in color!
Mary Jo Scandin’s students are motivated in their work by her enthusiasm for color and design. She has marketed her original designs nationally, and three children’s books feature her painted silk illustrations. From her home studio in Appleton, WI, Mary Jo’s work can be seen at Seasons On The St. Croix in Hudson, WI, Appleton’s Avenue Art, and Blue Dolphin Gallery in Door County. www.mjscandin.com
