Event Details

The Serti (closing or fence) technique is the silk painting technique where designs are outlined with gutter water-based resists, which are applied to white silk that has been preached, dried and stretched (on stretcher). Once the gutta or water-based resist has dried, it acts as a barrier for the dye or paint :keeping the color within the outlined areas of design and allowing you to achieve sharply defined borders. After the dye or paint has been properly set, the clear gutta or resist is removed and defining line the color of the original fabric remains. This technique comes to us from Indonesia and originally used a wax as a resist. It’s an ancient form of art and has a lot of traditional motifs.

We will learn how to transfer your design onto silk and outline a template on fabric, finishing up by painting with special silk dye.

Oksana Danziger, an experienced textile designer working in the industry for over twenty years, creates designs for major apparel and home furniture textile brands like Ann Taylor and GAP. She uses different techniques to explore a colorful world of batik in her artwork and textile designs.
