5th graders have just started a new project learning about the process of Batik. Batik uses hot wax as a resist on fabric to create a design. After the designs are created in wax, the fabric is dyed and left to dry. Once the fabric is dry, then the wax is ironed out of the fabric and you are left with a beautiful piece of work.
Right now, 5th graders are sketching mandala designs to transfer onto fabric where they have started the wax resist process.
