Welcome to Rosi Robinson's World of Batik Paintings & Textile Art

I hope you enjoy visiting my website and learning about Batik - its History; the Technique of Batik; about me as a batik artist and why I continue to enjoy the challenge of batik. Do look through my Gallery / Shop which highlights many of the batik paintings I've produced over the years. Since 1970, batik has been my passion. It has a magic and versatility that no other technique has to offer, which has continued to captivate me for over 50 years!.

Peacock Batik is a traditional process of decorating fabric where hot wax is applied to fabric to resist dyes. I work mainly on cotton fabric. However, my batik pictures are often mistaken for figurative watercolour paintings. They don't look like what people consider as batik. However, I promise you - they are!

I treat the fabric like a watercolour, where I apply hot wax to fabric to resist consecutive washes of dye. I apply the dyes directly, rather than dip-dye. I don't crackle the wax. I prefer the details and translucent dye colours to shine through. At the end of the process I remove the wax with an iron, thus revealing the colourful picture on the fabric.   

My 'Reflections of a Tree' batik painting (part of the International Artist magazine Challenge #127, 'Seascapes, Rivers and Lakes) was published in the International Artist magazine. #143, Feb/March, 2022, issue. I was chosen as one of the 8 finalists!

I enjoy doing commissions. If you'd like me to capture a memory or special event in a batik painting, please contact me to discuss it further. Do have a look at my original batik paintings, limited edition giclee prints & greetings cards in the Gallery/Shop. Please contact me on rosi@rosirobinson.com if you would like to purchase any of them or would like to enquire about talks or workshops. Please click on Workshops and Exhibitions for more information. about forthcoming events.

What has been wonderful this year is that I'm now able to teach batik workshops in person. My next workshop is on Sunday, 10th July at the Minerva Gallery in Llanidloes, Wales. Please contact me on rosi@rosirobinson.com if you're interested in joining it.  The Batik Guild is holding an International Batik Exhibition - 35 Years and Counting at the MInerva Gallery from July 9th - 23rd, 2022.                  

I'm teaching a three-day batik workshop at the Bath Textile Summer School on August 15th - 17th, 2022. Please contact Lynne Roche on www.bathtextilesummerschool.co.uk if you'd like to join the workshop. Both beginners and those with experience are warmly welcome.
