Batik Workshop at The Doodle Bar
Wed 19 July 2017, 19:00 – 22:00 BST
Explore the art of Batik - an ancient textile technique where hot wax is applied to fabric using a tool called a tjanting. Fabric (usually cotton or silk) is stretched onto a wooden frame and the tjanting is dipped into a pot of melted wax and used as a drawing tool to create patterns, compositions and illustrations. Coloured dyes are then painted onto the fabric, the lines of wax resist the colour, creating striking designs. All materials provided. Taking place at The Doodle Bar, 60 Druid St, London SE1 2EZ, UK.
