A Dyeing Art

Record #:
Batik is a 2,000-year-old art form. Its origin is unknown, although many people give the credit to Indonesia. Batik, a labor-intensive, time-consuming technique, is the application of a design on fabric using successive layers of removable wax to protect certain areas from being exposed to certain dyes. The process can take weeks and months, depending on the complexity of the piece. Raleigh batik artist Amy Chapman Braun talks about her technique and creations.
