In this workshop, we’ll look at various wax-resist traditions and examine how contemporary artists are using the techniques while commenting on the culture and historic context in which it derives. We will look at artwork by British-Nigerian artist Yinka Shonibare MBE and his use of Dutch Wax printed fabric in creating a dialogue about historic context. We will also be making our own fabric using the Batik technique.
