Introduction To Batik

INTRODUCTION TO BATIK

WEDS 4 SEPT 14:00 - 16:30

An introduction to Batik - a beautiful method of decorating textiles.
We will be using a stencil and tub dye method - With Zoe Eaton who will help you to design and create your own stencil. We then apply melted wax, which hardens and forms a 'resist' in the dye bath. The wax is easy to remove later, when the fabric is dry, revealing your design.

Included are all materials, and samples of plain cotton - ideal to use as a wall hanging or sewing project. But feel free to bring along any small, pre-washed cotton items such as table cloths, pillow case, T- Shirt, tea towel etc) to decorate on the day.

Suitable for adults and children over 5 years of age. Adults £20, children £10.
