Batik Experience Days in Derbyshire, UK

New Event: Botanical Batik Workshop, 4th May 2022 at Field Breaks Art, Dronfield, Derbyshire. (Suitable for beginners).

Try your hand at the ancient art of batik. Using hot wax and an array of colourful dyes to produce textile and paper creations, batik is a fun and unique way to craft.

The process offers a journey of discovery and surprise. The applied wax saves an area of colour and then resists further applications of colour as the piece transforms before your eyes with each subsequent application of the waxing and dyeing process!

My name is Sue and I am an experienced artist and crafts tutor with many years practicing batik. Please see www.susan-rhodes.co.uk for examples of my batik work. I offer you a warm welcome and a chance to come explore this intriguing craft.

Opened in November 2018, Attic Batik was originally housed in the Market Place of Belper’s historic White Swan, a former public house. Nowadays I can be found crafting from my home-studio in Ripley and I am still available to teach or to give talks and demonstrations. If you would be interested in booking me for an event or if you have any other questions, please get in touch!

I look forward to meeting you.
