Using the traditional art of batik the students designs were drawn on calico. Students then applied hot wax by brush onto the fabric areas they wanted to stay white. The fabric was then soaked in yellow dye. Once the fabric dried wax was added to the areas to remain yellow. The process was repeated with green, blue and red dye. Finally the wax was removed by placing the fabric under newsprint and ironed.
