Our absolute favorite thing to do in the studio. The smell of the hot beeswax, the incredible crackle texture, the resists, the layers, the splashes and dribbles… batik is phenomenally beautiful whether you’re a first-timer or a pro!
This class usually takes about 2 hours, give or take, depending on the artist (that’s YOU!). We currently offer batik to groups of 4 or fewer people. Pricing is per person. Children must be 8+ older. Batik is a standing activity. Please bring clothes you can get messy in!
Included in the price is:
- one 100% mini-tapestry (approx. 27″ square) to batik on
- All materials including natural beeswax, professional fiber dyes, applicators like paint brushes, cookie cutters, Indonesian tjanting tools, and hand carved teak stamps from Gujarat, India
- A thorough and expert lesson in all aspects of the craft, personalized for whatever designs you want to create
- All processing afterwards– we boil the wax out of your piece, clean it, wash & dry it once more for softness, and have it folded and ready for you to pick up (3-5 business days, usually).
Not from Asheville? No worries, we can easily add shipping to your piece, in one of our flat rate mailers. Not sure whether you can come get it or need it mailed? Decide when you’re here. It’s no problem!
We usually open online bookings 1-2 months at a time. Need a date further in the future? Email us!
