Adventures in Bangalore: Embroidery, Tie-Dye, Batik and Monsoons!


Here are some photos of our Surface Techniques class. We learned embroidery as well as tie-dye & a method called batik (a method in which you apply wax to the surface of the fabric prior to the dying process and then boil the wax out.)



We just finished this class this past Friday! It’s so exciting to be done with one class — but I am so exhausted. For our final in that class we had to do 4 creative swatches (in about 2 days!) We needed to incorporate at least two techniques we learned throughout the class.

For more pictures, follow the jump.



I slept at 4:30 a.m. then went to class the next day at 9 a.m. I found that the assignment was not due till 5:30 p.m. BUT I also learned that I needed to add MORE technique. Adriane and I blasted MSTRKFT and worked until 5:30 p.m. to submit the finals that were up to standards… or so we hope!
