More About This Experience

Hmong Du and Djua practice indigo resist batik; their skirts are decorated with this fabric. Traditionally Hmong Djua have bands of fabric stitched on the sleeves of jackets. Hmong Dao don???t practice batik, their skirts contain plain white bands of hemp on which they embroider, they are renown for their needle skills. This Hmong Batik Class is an introduction to Hmong culture. Each student will create a wax resist, Hmong style design on hand loomed hemp. Due to time constraints it is not possible to complete the dye portion of the process. The natural hemp renders a beautiful finished piece. Option 1: Full day Hmong Batik This class can be extended to a full day to create a larger textile piece. Full day price includes Lao-style lunch. (? Day includes a 30 x 46 cm hemp piece with wax resist design, 1 day includes a 30 x 80 cm hemp piece with wax resist design)
