Batik Workshop

During this workshop you will experience the colourful and creative Batik process and create two pieces of textile art. The first piece will be a circular design in an embroidery hoop, this is a practise piece to help you experiment with, applying the wax, mark-making and colour blending, mixing and layering. The second piece you create will be on a larger square piece on fabric. This can be an abstract design made up of colour, shapes and pattern or a more representative design, inspired by nature, or whatever takes your fancy!

Firstly you will practise using the wax tools to create lines and marks. You will draw with hot wax using traditional Tjanting and Kiskay tools. You can come to the workshop with a design of your own or choose from a selection of images on the day. Don't feel intimidated if you aren't confident at drawing, it is perfectly fine to trace a design onto the cloth.
