You will learn the process using a paste of flour and water to create a bold linear design on cotton. In Zimbabwe, they use sadza meal which is cheap and plentiful.

Participating students will bring design ideas to the workshop.  In the workshop, students will draw their design on cotton and then apply the paste which will act as a resist.  After the paste dries, they will paint the surface of the piece using acrylic paints.  The dried paste creates a striking linear design.  This is a chance for the students to explore the use of bold colors. 

Each student should bring an apron and 3 brushes.  The brushes should be stiff -- 3/4" size, 1/2" size and 1/4" size.
