COURSE DETAILS

Informed by the ancient Indonesian technique of layering melted wax and dyes on to textiles Marie-Therese King will show you how to create your own batik paintings.

During this two day workshop you will design your own piece, select dyes, use a variety of tools; tjantings, Ukrainian Kyskas, fan brushes and stamps to apply melted wax to cotton. You will have an opportunity to try scraffito, and the very traditional cracking and dipping process.

There will be time to produce two batiks, one which will be quite experimental, and the second will be more refined and considered.
