Spring on the Downs in batik

Come and learn the art of batik (using hot wax and fabric dyes) to create an individual picture inspired by wildlife found on the Downs in spring. Artist Jo Whiteland will show you how to design your picture, transfer to fabric and apply the wax and dyes to build up colour and texture before dipping in a dye bath to create the characteristic batik crackle effect. Suitable for ages 11+ (under 16s must be accompanied by an adult).

Saturday 21st March  |  10.00am – 4.30pm
£45.00 (includes materials)
