Last June I made four video’s of Carol Law Conklin making her batiks. Sunday, October 9th at 12:30 at the Bedlam Farm Open House Carol will be giving a demonstration of how she makes a batik.
It’s truly a magical thing to see. How she creates a horse or landscape by dripping wax then dying the fabric and repeating this process again and again.
Carol makes her batiks available to us in so many forms. You can purchase the originals, but she also prints them on functions objects such as trivets, mouse pads, cutting boards, note cards, scarves and pillows so they can become a part of our everyday life.
She prints them on fabric too (which are a lot less expensive than the originals). They can be framed or incorporated in your own creative endeavor.
Carol’s art hangs on my walls and sits on my tables and counter tops. I get to see and use them everyday.
You can see all of Carols wonderful creations here on her website Amity Farm Batik. And if you can’t make it to the Open House you can buy her work here.
Here’s the first video I made of Carol creating a batik, this past June. You can see all four videos, which shows the whole process, on my You Tube Page.
