I've been meaning to post this for some time. Back in June I took a batik textiles dye class at Ornamentea in Raleigh, NC. Above is my finished product, not bad for my 1st try... I took inspiration from the lush tropical prints and artwork I've been seeing all over the place this summer. The class was taught by the lovely and talented Kim Kirchstein of Leopold Design. The class was full of talented students (including my mother, the talented jewler; Julie Niederkorn) and we had a blast!
