Carina House Batik Workshop,

Ezen a tanfolyamon a tsanting és az akvarel használata mellett a technikai tudás elmélyítésére fordítottuk a legtöbb időt. Baliról hozott authentikus motívumokat, hitvilágukhoz kötődő szereplőket festettünk a már gyakorlott résztvevőkkel. A kezdő festőknek az alapvető fogások megtanítása után egy indonéz motívumokkal díszített kendő elkészítését tanítottam meg.

Egerszalók, Angyalosház Batik Workshop

We spent a very good weekend at Egerszalok. Four people tried this wonderful technique the first time, another three have been studying at my courses for years. Some of the beginners painted pillow covers, since wax painting was new to them. By the end of the third day, they decided to paint real batik paintings at the next workshop. Our guest organized the evening activities for us. The first evening, we visited one of the most beautiful natural salt bath in Hungary. The second evening, we were invited for a wine tasting tour by the local St. Andrea Vinery. The sommelier put his heart into his presentation the same way I teach batik painting to my students.
