IFD Master Workshop: The Art of Batik with Trish Langman
In this creative workshop, artist and textile designer Trish Langman offers hands-on instruction in the art of Batik. After a short introduction to the art form, participants will enjoy an audience-assisted demo by the artist followed by an opportunity to paint and dye personal batik samples. Langman will advise individually on technique, color, and composition for each sample. You’ll leave with resources in-hand for where to find batik supplies, instructions to batik at home, and links to artisan work. All materials and protective gear are provided in class. Come learn this centuries-old art form from one of its masters!
About Inside Fashion Design
What you didn’t know, you will know.
Inside Fashion Design is an intimate behind the scenes look into the world of apparel design. As two designers, with a collective forty years in the industry, we’ve had the privilege of working at and being part of the vibrant, innovative, culture of Nike, a little company founded on the principle of design. Later came Donna Karan, Tommy Hilfiger, and others. Throughout we mastered our craft, and upon feeling an entrepreneurial pull, opened our own consulting studio called Creative Capital Design four years ago.
Given that one of the most joyful aspects of our work is nurturing and mentoring new talent, we went searching for a platform to do this beyond our studio walls. And Inside Fashion Design was born. Our belief is that all who live for or have a curiosity for fashion design should have the opportunity to explore it. And so, we open the door to our library of expertise and resources, inviting you in to experience them. Design workshops, tutorials, trend talks and exclusive insider interviews. Here you can study the wide array of industry disciplines, including roles you may be unaware of but are integral to making the cogs of a company turn. There are so many possibilities for discovering pleasure in artistic fulfillment.
We aspire to nourish our creative, cerebral selves. We’ll measure our teachings not only by the knowledge imparted, but more importantly, by the enthusiasm it generates. Because any spark we can implant in your inquisitive soul may someday be the new heartbeat of the fashion industry.
So please, dive in.
