Batik: ‘Go with the flow’

Immerse yourself in the delightful flowing art medium of Batik. Learning to use the
tjanting (wax pen) you will experience the flowing lines and the wax ‘resisting’ the vibrant
dyes, creating your design through this ancient Asian and African art medium. Working on fabric, your design is built by applying wax layers alternately with the dyes. Tapping into your creative self (it just needs a method that works for you), this therapeutic and soothing process is ideal to become immersed into the flowing, forgiving wax lines and glorious vibrant colours. We will use Egyptian cotton, soya wax and Procion dyes. Suitable for beginners and the more experienced. Bring your own photos/ drawings (high contrast and on photocopy paper) or find inspiration on the day. When you leave, you will be competent in Batik, taking home your unique, individual batik design.
