Offered in partnership with Mount Airy Learning Tree

Take a creative journey into the world of batik and Adire (tie & dye) textile-making and discover the influence of the vibrant world of African textiles and their deep cultural significance. Drawing inspiration from his Yoruba roots and Nigerian heritage, Muyiwa, an expert in the field, will guide you through the process of using wax and dye to create intricate patterns and motifs. You will start by applying hot wax to 100% cotton fabrics to create patterns, then immerse them in vibrant dyes. Finally, we'll carefully remove the wax, revealing beautiful, colorful designs. You may infuse your designs with your unique voice, or use African patterns to create beautiful cotton fabric or a cotton shirt. By the end of the class, you'll have crafted textiles that reflect the beauty and essence of African traditions.

Students will experiment with color saturation and changes in intensity, color temperatures (warm and cool), complements and contrasts, muted tones, color values, and applications of thick and thin paint.
