We have four batik making kits.

One is suitable for trying out batik on paper and the beginners kits can be used to try batik on cotton fabric or on a cotton scarf.

In response to added demand we have included a deluxe version of our batik kit too!

To start with you could use an old pan to melt your wax in and then when you are feel ready to take the plunge, I recommend a waxpot or an electric frying pan with a thermostat which is what I useHave fun!

Because the kits include soda ash and wax we can't post these kits out to countries outside the UK (as they may be stopped at customs)

You can buy all the different individual items in the kit seperately but this saves you money!

For more tips, have a look at our batik instructions page.
