Here are some links to websites which have been recommended by Guild members and which we feel anyone interested in batik will find useful.
Batik and printing equipment for every batiker. We sell cantings and copper stamps from Java, fine cotton and rayon, procion dyes, a range of waxes, kits and waxpot. PLUS a great range of wooden printing blocks, sample sets, tips and instructions and batik fabric galore!
Diane and Jim Gaffney are specialists in hand made textiles from Asia and particularly batik. Diane runs occasional specialist batik tours to Java. They supply cantings and caps (wax pens and copper stamps), wax, cotton, dyes, samples, and information. They also have lots of real batik textiles for sale and give talks and workshops on Javanese batik.
