Batik Week Workshop
- A workshop with 5 days of studio time offering an opportunity to deepen an existing batik practice or discover a new fibre art form, through a vibrant creative experience with other practitioners. Drawing on Threads of Life’s detailed field research of Indonesia’s ancient natural dye traditions, this workshop explores the interaction between this pallet of colours and the batik process. For beginners to advanced practitioners alike.
The following Guild members may also offer workshops and talks by arrangement.
