Batik Surface Design | Sunday Sessions


Various dates | 11am - 3pm

Social, informal and a chance to gather with friends and family, Sunday Sessions introduce design led crafting techniques in the comfort of our contemporary light filled Work Room. You'll be greeted with a drink, soft music will play and you'll spend a gentle few hours relaxing and learning something new, taking away work to cherish or gift.

Batik is an Indonesian technique of drawing wax onto fabric.

In this workshop you will create surface designs by applying wax on to fabric. The wax creates a resist and then dyes are applied to add colour. When the wax is removed it leaves behind beautiful silhouette designs.

You will be shown basic batik methods in this workshop with templates provided to inspire and draw from. Your unique surface design can then be presented at home as a framed work, a hanging or perhaps the fabric can be the basis of another project such as a cushion cover, lampshade or book binding.
