Mint Hill Arts presents Laura Smith, Batik Artist and Color Specialist
Mint Hill Arts Center
Mint Hill Arts is excited to announce our next Artist Demonstration with Laura Smith! You are invited to come learn about the ancient process of wax batik on Tuesday, February 25, 7:00 p.m. Laura will demonstrate three different applications to show contrasting effects. Batik can create complex designs with color layering on fabric or paper. Colors are painted or dyed in layers alternating with wax applicatiions. An optional crackling technique creates a marbled effect in the background. There are endless possibilities for batik fabric including quilting, garment construction and embroidered embellishment.

Her work has been shown all over the U.S. She holds the Master Craftsman designation in Color from the Embroiderers’ Guild of America (EGA) and has served as chair for the Master Craftsman Program 2006-2018.
