A new experience in Belper. Taking bookings now!

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 wax and dye layering process!

Opened in November 2018, my new studio Attic Batik is housed in the Market Place in the historic building of The White Swan, a former public house recently transformed into luxurious and peaceful suites for businesses in the creative and healing industries.

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 more about me. I offer you a warm welcome and a chance to come explore this intriguing craft in very comfortable surroundings in the heart of Belper, a pretty market town just a stones throw from the stunning Derbyshire Peak District.

I look forward to meeting you. In the meantime, if you have any questions you’d like to ask, please get in touch!
