Indonesian Batik Workshop: Indigo Waves (18+)
Saturday 18th February, 09.30 - 15.30 (£58)
Batik is an Indonesian technique of wax-resist dyeing of cloth, originating from the island of Java, Indonesia. Learn the basics with traditional Javanese tjanting and Malam wax; plan your own design, apply the wax, and dye your fabric. We shall create designs inspired by the theme of Blue Planet. Be creative with your wave patterns, or work on what your expert tutor has designed, whilst applying the traditional techniques of Batik, which you will learn step by step. You will then keep the piece, which will make a beautiful gift or for your own keepsake. Please note that the batik-making process will involve the use of Malam – a special wax for batik drawing made of natural substances. Due to the heating process, it may produce a certain smell. Face masks are highly recommended, but please inform us should you have a hypersensitivity to smell.
