Batik - hot wax full day workshop



Join me for a day to learn the basics about the art of batik on silk. You will design and create a batik picture applying hot wax using Tjanting tools and brushes. I will show you how to layer wax and achieve the characteristic crackle effect. Bring ideas, photos or pictures cut from magazines as a starting point or let me know a theme and I will do the research. If you haven’t a particular idea in mind I have lots of ideas and templates to follow. I will support you every step of the way. You will go home with a beautiful, unique batik picture.

What's included in the price?

Everything you need. Just bring an apron and some lunch. I provide tea and coffee.

Hello, I retired from teaching 7 years ago and started to develop my arty side. I worked in watercolour and acrylics attending numerous workshops to develop my art skills. Two / three years ago I stumbled on Craftcourses and booked a silk painting course and I loved it. Silk painting then became my preferred art form. I then discovered batik using hot wax. Some of my silk paintings I go on to embellish with stitching and appliqué. I am passionate about my art and now run workshops, exhibit my work and sell my work through artisan markets. Many of my works have been printed to make greetings cards.
