Batik Gelli art

Thank you to local artist Deborah Turner who held a Batik Gelli workshop for pupils in Year 10 and Year 11.

The pupils spent the morning learning about Batik Gelli – an Indonesian inspired technique of decorating cloth using hot wax and dye. They were then able to try out a variety of tools, including brushes and tjantings to draw and make expressive marks with wax.

Deborah was very impressed with their stunning collection of designs!
