'Explore the Magic of Batik'
with Rosi Robinson
at the Martindale Centre, Station Road, Horsted Keynes, West Sussex RH17 7ED
Learn the basics of this wonderful traditional resist technique of decorating fabric. Discover the magical quality and variety of effects that batik - wax, dyes, fabric (and paper) - has to offer.
This one or two day workshop is suitable for any level of experience. You can work at your own pace and ability under the supervision of the internationally renowned batik artist and instructor, Rosi Robinson.
You will be introduced to a variety of traditional and contemporary techniques on cotton fabric using hot liquid wax and fibre-reactive dyes. You will learn how to apply hot wax with brushes, cantings (Tjantings), Caps (tjaps) and stamps both found and made; etch and spatter wax. You will learn how to do batik in a more painterly way - almost like painting in watercolours - on both fabric and paper. By waxing areas at each stage you will learn how to build up a picture or design by applying dye washes starting from the lightest colour leading up to the darkest. You will also learn how to discharge colour on both paper and cotton fabric. During the weekend you will produce one or more colourful batik designs or pictures.
You will need only an apron, a hairdryer and some ideas and photographs.
The cost of a one day workshop is £50 and for two days is £100, plus £5 - £10 depending on materials used. All materials are provided plus tea/coffee, but please bring a packed lunch.
The day starts at 9.30am and lasts till 4 - 4.30pm.

As a freelance tutor and lecturer she is happy to travel to your Group or Organization and offer talks, presentations and/or batik workshops.
