Here are a few piccies from the Batik workshop at Whinlatter
I did ages ago, run by my friend Di. She's one of those people with a lot of energy, always lots on the go, always a lot of fun. I'm hoping to feature her on this blog at some point soon, but I have to pin her down for that, so it may be tricky.
Batik is created by 'drawing' with hot wax and then dying the fabric so that the non waxed area picks up the colour
then repeating the process as many times as you like
|This isn't Di|
Di quite often does her workshops with SMALL children using the hot wax and sloshing the dye about. She deserves a medal!
Everyone ended up with something unique.
And I got ideas for new work

The next Batik workshop for adults is 14 October 2012. - to book, email email@example.com
