Event Overview

Create your own personalized set of batik flags! Hang them at your door or in your garden! They will uplift and bring beauty and joy to any space.


You will learn the resist-and-dye technique characteristic of traditional Japanese batik, a form known for its stunning and often unpredictable textures and tone to create your own set of vibrant, personalized flags. 


All materials will be provided, including repurposed sheets for you to use as a canvas and a multitude of colors to create a magical set of flags. If you would like you are also welcome to bring your recycled 100% cotton sheets or pillowcases to dye. In the class, you will have access to inspirational ideas and copies of images and symbols. Consider using symbols that are important to you, or just let the creative colors flow. 


No matter what you choose to do, you will leave with a unique and striking final product! 


NOTE: Consider wearing old (not your favorite) clothes to this class, as the dyes do stain.


Teacher: Annie Casey with support from Jen Pastalo Dacpano (In Creative Bliss and Art+Craft)

MORE ABOUT YOUR HOST

I have a mission! I want to bring people together to create, and grow a collective of curious creatives and artists in arms who wish to share their passion for making and hand crafting beautiful things for the pure joy of it.

Just this December, a dream came true for me. I now have a space to call home for all of my passions. It's a boutique fabric nook and makerspace in RiNo, where I host all my classes, sell amazing modern fabric, beads, and jewelry. Come see us at 3327 Brighton Blvd. Denver, CO 80216. (Hours are posted on the website.)

As far as my creativity philosophy goes, I believe all art comes from the soul, the architect, and the hands and eyes are the builders for those inspired ideas. When we make I get lost in the process and drop all judgements and lock away the inner critic, allowing myself to simply play. Altogether, I am a fabric, quilt, music, bead and jewelry enthusiast, but I want to gather makers of all arts to inspire, support each other, and share. I'd love to build a creative community, and bring together others who have a passion for making things. I also sing, play a few instruments, and write inspiring songs with my darling songstress sisters, the Leaders of the Heart and Starling, in Denver and Boulder. I hope to join forces in creative bliss.

    I had a great time! I was the only guy there (along with my wife and 7 other ladies). Was very relaxing and the time flew by. I was very happy with the 3 batik flags I made and some of the other works by the ladies there were amazing!
