Sorry, this class is now full. The Spirit Doll Class still has openings.
General Information about class:
Seven Spirits Gourd Art
Wax Resist Bowl or Vessel
Class: Wax Resist
Direction handout will be given to each student.
Students need to bring scissors to class.
Students will learn this very old technique of wax resist. Students will make a 6-8 inch bowl or vessel. They will learn how to use the kitska, beeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s wax and a candle to create wax patterns on their gourd. They will then fill in the wax patterns with leather dye to give the illusion of African Mud Cloth. Students will sew on sea grass, hemp and twines and embellish with shells and beads.
Teacher will provide all supplies.
Students will leave class with a finished project.
