The art of Batik is believed to have originated in Indonesia where it has been practised for centuries.The word Batik comes from the Indonesian "tik" which means "to dot".

The traditional methods use wax, dye, cantings, copper caps and a variety of other tools to create spontaneous patterns.

In this workshop, Margaret will introduce some techniques and show you how to make a beautiful batik panel.
