Batik Inspired by Nature

Workshop with Angel Lenman in collaboration with Surrey Wildlife Trust

  • Date : Friday 6th October 2017  10am to 3pm
  • Location : Nower Wood Educational Nature Reserve, Mill Way, Leatherhead KT22 8QA

About Angela's workshop

Batik is a form of wax resist whereby hot wax is applied to cloth, which is then covered with dye. The wax will resist the dye creating a simple pattern. By repeated application of wax, followed by repeated applications of dyes in various colours, an intricate pattern can be built up and developed into a desired decoration or even a picture. Angela suggests that some time is spent prior to the course forming ideas that can then be added to the natural vision of the day.

  • There will be a maximum of 10 participants.
  • The workshop will begin with a short walk in the woodlands surrounding the Nower Wood Educational Nature Reserve as inspiration for the batik, which will be on fabric.
  • Following the walk Angela will introduce you to waxing and dyeing.
  • All equipment will be provided, but participants may wish to bring some photographs or other source materials for inspiration.
  • Drinks and biscuits will be provided.
  • Participants should bring their own lunch.
  • The workshop costs £70 for SWT members and £75 for non-members.
