What a creative night

19 Jul

We had a little panic about having enough space for all the different parts of this workshop so we got out all 10 tables and then had a comic time moving and arranging them, it was like a giant puzzle! Annalees Lim from Makers and Creators kindly led our workshop and she took us through the whole process of batik including a bit of history and then everyone got down to designing their scarves using some books she brought for inspiration. No one had done batik before and despite murmurs of ‘I haven’t got a creative bone in my body’ the finished results were very professional mainly due to Annalees instilling confidence in everyone. There were various ‘stations’ to apply the wax and to apply the colours so there was a little waiting time for some which was filled with tea, cake and meeting new people and chatting.
















Huge thanks to Annalees who gave her time for free, as do all our workshop tutors, and especially for sending everyone afterwards a list of suppliers and follow up information.











Take a look at our facebook page for more photos of other finished scarves. Annalees has various workshops on Thursdays and some Saturdays coming up in Autumn. Do take a look here for more details and a booking form.
