Silk painting & batik courses

Silk painting and batik courses, classes and workshops at locations across the UK. Silk painters and batik artists create works of exquisite beauty. Batik can be used to create complicated and very elegant designs as layer upon layer of wax and dyes are used. Batik and silk-painting is the art of decorating cloth using hot wax and dye. The effects are of vibrant colour and batik is astoundingly beautiful. Modern batik and silk painting tutors utilise contemporary dyes and a range of materials like silk, cotton, leather and paper. If you would like to learn the traditional art of batik or silk painting then come and learn how at one of our many courses.
