About the Course
Learn traditional skills to create designs on fabric. In this batik workshop you will learn to use traditional tools to apply melted wax to cotton, forming a barrier. Experiment with different waxes to achieve amazing results, you will then apply vibrant dyes to create a picture to take home.
Alternatively you can make your design on a scarf and create an individual accessory .
Taught in my rural studio with wonderful views of the North Devon coast. I learnt my skills in Malaysia and added to them with attending workshops over the years. I sell my paintings, scarves and household linens at craft fairs and in exhibitions.
I am a member of the Batik Guild.

What a lovely way to spend my time! I am not very artistic, but it didn't really matter, experimenting with patterns and shapes was just as good. It's interesting how the wax and the dyes work, was proud of my efforts 😊. Everything was supplied, including a light lunch and beverages
Learning the art of Batik was just one part of the day, I made new friends, and loved the vista from the well lit studio.
Sadly I only completed only half of the day as I had to dash off, however I took my masterpiece home with me. Thank you Bridget and thank you other participants

Fantastic relaxing and happy day. Bridget in her quiet way gave us a very comprehensive lesson on the art of Batik.
Everyone enjoyed the day. It would make an ideal present for someone. I may do it again with my daughter.
Lovely views from Bridget studio. We were all pleased with our art work at the end of day. Thank you Bridget

I started out knowing next to nothing about Batik but, with Bridget's patient help and expertise, I surprised myself with my lovely "waterlily" image. The studio is well equipped and I had a lovely day in good company including a delicious carrot soup lunch.
