I did this with a group of HSers in textiles class last spring. The pieces
were awesome and far less difficult than the mess associated with traditional
Batik. this group had the attention span of a gnat so the lesson was perfect
for them. You could have kids do trapunto or beading or fringing and tieing.
Endless possibilities.

Also did traditional Batik on rice paper with a drawing andf painting group.
Several of my more motivated mastered tjanting needle drawing.
They were all successful. Big and colorful. I've repeated this every year.
Kids love it.
