We are booking classes for the

2021 Summer/Fall season!

Beth and Jonathan Evans offer batik classes at their studio at Shalawalla Gallery in LaVeta, CO. Whether you are a beginner or want to add to your existing skills they offer classes to fill your individual needs. Learn basic dyeing and wax application, detailed tjanting work and layered batik dye painting techniques. Try a day of batik fun to a four day intensive course. Great for quilters and artists who would like to incorporate batik into their work. (In a one day class you can leave with a finished scarf or bandanna and a small painting or two!) 


Shalawalla is located in beautiful La Veta in Southern Colorado. When you're not waxing and dyeing you can enjoy walks around town, mountain hikes, the local restaurants and shops or just sit peacefully and enjoy the views of the Spanish Peaks and Sangre de Cristo mountains.
