Wax resist dying / printing of fabric is an ancient art form which existed in Egypt in the 4th century BC. Mummies were wrapped in BATIK decorated cloth!!
However, the art of BATIK is most highly developed in the island of Java in Indonesia.
Come and learn this beautiful and ancient Indonesian resist painting and dying technique. My classes take you step by step through the 3 main stages of drawing, waxing, and painting to create your own beautiful, unique design.
Each student gets to take home their finished batik design either on a t-shirt or a piece of fabric ready to be turned into a beautiful homeware product. Plus the knowledge to continue practicing at home.
There will be a break for lunch! We have an on sight cafe, or you are welcome to bring your own food (we also have kitchen facilities).
