DIY Batik Tote Bag

Updated: Jul 21


In this two-part project students will create their own batik designs on a tote bag using a modern supplies (glue and paint) to learn about an ancient textile tradition. Students will learn about resist methods of textile design and use bold colors to paint over their resist design. After drying the paint will be washed to reveal a dyed effect and display the finished batik design.

INNOVATION COMPONENTS:

By using glue as a drawing substance they will mask off areas of their tote bag that will not be exposed to paint colors. When the tote bag is washed the glue will melt away and the protected canvas will be revealed teaching the students about resist methods and positive/negative design.

CAREER COMPONENT:

Textile designers create the fabric that is used in clothing, home décor, and in commercial applications. Many textile designers draw their ideas from their culture and are also inspired by nature. The fabric that gets created from an artists designs help make the world a more interesting place.
