Can you resist?!

As Artists, in Class 1, we have been exploring pattern through beautiful African fabric from Nigeria and Uganda. We have investigated different dye-resist methods  used to create patterns.

     

 

We started with exploring simple wax resist patterns before learning about the Nigerian dye resist method of 'Adire Eleko'. We used flour paste to develop our own designs using this technique. We then had a go at tie dye. We were really pleased with the results!
