About the event

Batik is a fabulous craft with an incredible history of more than 2000 years. This ancient craft is still commonly used in the Far East and stands the test of time.

This is a taster workshop where you explore various techniques in building up multiple layers of hot wax on cotton fabric. This wax acts as a resist to the dyes and in turn allows the artisan to selectively colour areas by soaking the cloth in dye, removing the wax and repeating to add another colour to create the design on the cotton.

In this workshop you will:

• Stretch the cotton fabric on a wooden frame.

• Prepare the design on paper.

• Transfer the design on the fabric

• Choose two colours for the design and start applying wax for first colour.

• Dip the fabric in first dye.

• Dry the fabric and apply wax for second colour and dip it in dye-bath time permitting.
