Beautiful Batik on Paper
Batik is an ancient textile technique originating in Indonesia. Pattern is applied onto cloth using molten wax with fine brushes or tools called tjantings, before coloured dyes are applied to the fabric. In more recent years this highly decorative and colourful process has been used to create designs and images on paper.
Join Alison for a workshop in the farmhouse studio or the Long Barn to explore the vibrant batik process.
The day will include creating a range of experimental samples and unique outcomes. You may choose to work with the themes of Florals or Abstract Pattern, or take inspiration from different cultural images; alternatively you may wish to develop designs of your own choosing.
The Batik Workshops are delivered by Alison Butler of Blooming Designs. With over 25 years experience as a textile designer and book illustrator, Alison will guide you through a range of exciting approaches.
