The Batik Guild was the first guild in the world devoted entirely to batik. Now an expanding group of international members, it was formed in 1986 by a small group of batik artists in London, England. About half the members are based in Great Britain and Ireland but there are enthusiastic members in Europe, USA, Canada , South America, Australia, Russia, Poland, Africa and Asia. Members include professional artists, amateur artists, teachers, students, and those that simply enjoy doing batik. The Guild is a non-profit making organisation financed by members’ subscriptions. It is run by volunteers.

The Guild aims to promote and improve education in the field of batik, and encourages and supports its members as individual artists or craftspeople. Through meetings, exhibitions, lectures, workshops and a colour magazine three times a year, it stimulates a constructive and creative approach to the craft, and provides a forum for communications relating to new techniques.

On this website you will find information about members of the Guild and their art, discover where batik is being exhibited, find which Guild members run workshops near to you or see books they have written. There are also special sections on suppliers and on the history of batik.
