We regularly give talks and batik workshops for Quilters, Embroiderers, Weavers, Spinners and Dyers, museum groups, teachers and college students across the UK, including Scotland, Wales and Ireland. If you would like us to visit, please get in touch.
All the talks last for about an hour and are suitable for any group interested in textiles. We bring a wide variety of textiles and tools to look at and, most importantly, to handle. We will also bring along a selection of relevant textile goodies for sale afterwards.
We charge £110 for a talk plus travel expenses of 40p per mile
Workshop - An Introduction to Batik the Javanese Way is a whole day or a weekend to experiment with batik using authentic copper stamps and canting wax tools from Java. This workshop is suitable both for beginners and for those who have done some batik before. We just need a suitable room with plenty of electric sockets and access to a sink.
We charge £250 for a one day workshop and £400 for a two day workshop plus travel expenses of 40p per mile. The maximum number of participants on a workshop is 12.
