13 - 14 November, 2021 Carina House Batik Workshop, Budapest
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.
June 10 - 13, 2021| Dörgicse, Batik Workshop The weather was perfect for painting and e-biking. For supper we went to the restaurant of the Dabas Bio Vinery. We would like to thank the hospitality of the Casa Jamon, where we received the highest level of service. For breakfast we had local chese, salami with a lot of vegies, home made bread and freshly pressed orange juice. The rooms were nice with comfy beds and the panorama was beautiful.
April 30 - May 2, 2021| 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.
November - December, 2019| Kosovo Workshop In November 2019, I spent two weeks in Kosovo for the invitation of the International Women for Women Organization. Here, I taught ten ladies to use batik technique to produce marketable items.

In January and February 2020, I spent one month in Chile, for the invitation of the well-known Chilean batik artist Cataline Espina. We exchanged different wax painting methods and techniques.
February, 2019| Bali I traveled to Indonesia, to the island of Bali, three times. This was the last of the three trips. I was enjoying my time in the already familiar surroundings. I deepened my knowledge trough working with acknowledged batik gurus such as Nyoman Warta, Gusti Sujana, Widya and Nyoman Suradnya.
In the summer of 2018, I had an opportunity to visit Japan. I had a great time in Kyoto, Tokyo, Osaka, Kobe, Yokohama and Nara. In Kyoto, I was welcomed by the director of the Shibori Museum, who showed me the exhibition and I had the honor to be dressed into a priceless, handmade silk kimono. The memories of my Japanese trip gave me inspiration to paint several artworks.
