As part of the Cam Valley Arts Trail weekend come and visit the open studio at Paulton Engine. See the display of modern and traditional batik cloth from Java, Ghana and Nigeria.
Spend an hour at the workshop learning the traditional flowing art of Javanese Batik (wax resist). Take home your own original cotton design sample.
Master the art of drawing with hot wax, using a traditional wax pen (tjanting) then add vibrant colour dyes to complete your design.
Experience the therapeutic qualities of using wax resist.
Go with the flow.
Stay on for tea and cake while your art work is finished as a sun catcher, book mark or wall hanging.
Beginners very welcome. Adults & children (over 8 and accompanied/ supervised through the workshop) all welcome.
Especially the ‘no good at art’ folk. My favourite challenge!
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
The studio is at Paulton Engine, a vast, light and purpose built as the Iron Foundry from 1910 with lots of historic interest for visitors. The studio is a Hanham Lane, Paulton, BS39 7PF
The studio is accessed by 10 wide stone steps. There are 2 disabled WCs. Parking is limited on the driveway. We would encourage walking from Paulton village or from the top of Hanham Lane or from Gossard Bridge.
