You deserve to Dye !

We at The Square Inch, are getting ready to host a Batik workshop over the next two days. The instructor is the awesome Batik Artist, Kanal Shah of 'Creative Batik & Indian Textiles'.

Kanal Shah is architect and designer from Baroda, India, living and working in Switzerland. Having learnt the art of Batik early on from her mother she has been creating different works in batik art in Switzerland since 2004, combining the traditional art with contemporary patterns and proportions. She has since then hosted and participated in different exhibitions displaying and teaching her work. 

Batik is both an art and a craft, which is gaining popularity in recent times as a wonderfully creative medium. The art of decorating cloth in this way, using wax and dye, has been practised for centuries. 

The upcoming two day workshop comprises of painting through handling of wax using different techniques and colouring with dyes. Each participant gets to create his/her own piece of batik as a take away. The workshop fee is inclusive of all material. Just come in with a creative mood and unleash your artistic instinct through medium of wax.

You can take a look at some of Kanal's work here too... .

  1. I haven't gotten into the dyeing of fabrics myself, but it does look interesting and creative. I hope you have fun!
