Enjoy a journey of discovery, experimentation and surprise! I offer pop-up workshop tuition to schools, small groups and on a one-to-one basis for adults and children. All equipment is provided and with guidance I can enable you to explore the possibilities of this unique and ancient craft. I will teach you the process of layering up colours using hot wax as a resist medium and show you a range of techniques for creating beautiful individual works of art on cotton, silk and paper, or simply assist you in designing your own fabric.  You will take away stunning unique pieces suitable for a variety of uses including framed art, wall hangings, appliqué and quilting, soft furnishings, clothing, and many other craft purposes.

Testimonial:
"The children of Class 3 took part in a Batik workshop, on Monday June 18th 2018, ran by Sue Rhodes. Sue's preparation for the workshop was exceptional. Every child was supplied with a wooden frame, muslin, hot wax, coloured dyes and hairdryers. The standard of the products the children used was top quality. Instructions and requirements prior to the session had been made clear and the children had been asked to create a design. This made the transition into the session very smooth.
A very good demonstration of what Batik looked like and what the children could achieve was given by Sue at the start. The children were very well supervised by additional adults whilst they used hot wax and dye etc. and all adhered to health and safety requirements. The children were engaged throughout the whole session and were seen to develop their skills and appreciation of the technique. Sue was very patient and full of encouragement. 
I would definitely consider having Sue back to deliver a session in the future and would not hesitate to recommend her."
