Batik techinque

Batik is a technique of dyeing applied to whole cloth. Batik is made either by a string or rope tied around the cloth.

The chidren chose how to tie the string around their own white t-shirt. The applied string allows the blue colour not to enter some part of the cloth, creating circular design.

The batik by soaking the cloth in the blue colour was made by teachers and the day after the children removing the rope.

It's possible repeating if multiple colours are desired.

Children and teachers of class 2, Primary school Rodari, chose the blue color because they worked about water and their school trip was to Como Lake.

There , always connected with water, the chidren became artists with watercolors.

Wonderful results... and a lot of fun!
