The LIMBURG BIENNALE in MARRES: Maastricht
From 5 Sept-15 Nov 2020
The shape of this Biennale has been grafted on that of the annual SUMMER EXHIBITION of the ROYAL ACADEMY in LONDON.
The 12 judges have each put together their chosen works in one of the spaces.
New works by members of the Scottish Batik Guild
Learn the basics of this wonderful traditional resist technique of decorating fabric. Discover the magical quality and variety of effects that batik - wax, dyes, fabric (and paper) - has to offer.
This one or two-day workshop is suitable for any level of experience. You can work at your own pace and ability under the supervision of the internationally renowned batik artist and instructor, Rosi Robinson.
You will be introduced to a variety of traditional and contemporary waxing techniques on cotton fabric and paper using hot liquid wax and fibre-reactive dyes. You will learn how to do batik in a more painterly way - almost like painting in watercolours, on both fabric and paper. By waxing areas at each stage, you will learn how to build up a picture or design by applying dye washes starting from the lightest colour leading up to the darkest. You will also learn how to discharge colour on both paper and cotton fabric.
