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 and why I continue to love batik and of course; 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.
My batik paintings are often mistaken for figurative watercolour paintings. They don't look like traditional batik. However, I promise you - they are batiks!
I treat the fabric like a watercolour, where I apply hot wax to fabric to resist consecutive washes of 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
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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. My next batik workshop is on October 30th and 31st, 2021 at the Martindale Centre, Horsted Keynes, West Sussex, RH17 7ED.
I will be exhibiting with the Sussex Guild at Borde Hill Gardens, near Haywards Heath, RH16 1XP. on 26th and 27th June. www.bordehill.co.uk. I will be having a solo exhibition 'Batiks to Dye For' at Shoreham Art Gallery in Shoreham-by-Sea , from July 2nd - August 2nd 2021. www.shorehamgallery.co.uk. I will be present in the gallery on certain days. Please contact me if you're interested in finding out more about these and other exhibitions.
In the meantime, enjoy browsing through my gallery and website.
