What you'll do

Batik is a technique of wax-resist that originated in Indonesia and is used all over Africa, Japan and China. Wax is applied onto fabric with a spouted tool called a tjanting. The applied wax resists dyes and therefore allows the artisan to colour selectively. The technique I developed, which you will gradually experience during the course of the workshop, is hand painted batik which allows for a greater variety of colors and patterns, contrasts and harmonies.

Food
We will share a light lunch together, so please bring something to share! I will provide mountain water, tea & coffee.

Batik is my passion. I use a tjanting, patterns, colours, and transparencies to create artworks and fashion. Originally Parisian, (I speak French as well as being fluent in English), I live and work in Cape Town's Oude Molen eco Village vibrant community. I am a renowned artist creating as Syl'Batik and a workshop facilitator. I will share with you my unique technique of hand painted Batik in a friendly environment : my studio is in an enclosed lush garden. Enjoy the peace—it's addictive!
