Discover the Magic of Batik with Rosi Robinson

Discover the Magic of Batik!

 The Martindale Centre, Horsted Keynes, West Sussex, RH17 7ED 
Dates: March 30th and 31st, June 29th and 30th, and October 26th and 27th 2019. 

One day or two day batik workshops with Rosi Robinson, author of Creative Batik.

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 waxing techniques on cotton fabric and paper using hot liquid wax and fibre-reactive dyes. 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.

For the workshop you will need:

  • 2B pencil
  • A black fine permanent pen
  • Some watercolour brushes
  • Apron
  • Hairdryer
  • Some ideas/photographs/drawings to work from.
All other materials will be provided plus tea/coffee and some refreshments. Please bring a packed lunch.

The daystarts at 9.30am and lasts to about 4-4.30pm. 

One day workshop: £55
Two day workshop: £110 
(plus an additional charge of £10 for materials.)                                          

If you would like to join a workshop, please contact Rosi Robinson by email: rosirob@aol.com or visit her website at www.rosirobinson.com.
