Nicky Pike reviewed: Painting with beeswax & dyes - Batik Pictures

"A fantastic beginners course. Barbara is a very friendly and interesting teacher, clearly very knowledgable about Batik as well as lots of other crafts. At the beginning we found the technique challenging, and harder than it looked. After practice we all ended up with final pieces we were very pleased with. Thanks Barbara!"
