Batik Painting using Natural Dyes with Susan D’Souza

Batik painting using natural dyes with Susan D’souza 

Saturday 13th June 10.00-2.00

The garden will provide the source of inspiration for the rhythms and patterns of your sketched designs.  The process will be easy for beginners or can be layered in a more complex way for those that have worked with batik before.  Using cotton or silk material you will practice using a range of tools to mark a wax resist design onto cloth before exploring hand painting with natural dyes.
