The Batik Guild celebrates 20 years of batik art
From classic to contemporary
plus postage and packing.
Published to accompany the Batik Transitions exhibition in 2006, the Guild's 64-page book is still available. It is beautifully designed and produced with over 200 full colour photographs. The first part looks at world batik with sections on Indonesia, China, and Africa. There is also detail on many of the other places where batik is made such as Australia, Sri Lanka and Malaysia.
The second part highlights various batik and wax techniques and is the result of contributions from several Guild members. The final part is a gallery of contemporary work which has been chosen for its variety in media, techniques and expression. There is also information on books, websites, contacts and places to see batik in the UK.
