Syl' Batik

01 Be Unique TAG Syl Batik workshops.jpg

From fashion to accessories to home decoration, theatre sets and events, the versatility of Syl’Batik allows a wide variety of patterns, colours, size and shapes to explore the artist’s whims, client’s themes and current trends.



Batik is a technique of wax-resist that originated in Indonesia and is used all over Africa, Japan and China. Wax is applied onto fabric with a spouted tool called a tjanting, a brush or a stamp. The applied wax resists dyes and therefore allows the artisan to colour selectively. You will experience during the course of the workshop a unique technique of hand painted batik which allows for a greater variety of patterns, contrasts and harmonies.

What else you should know ? Beginner or confirmed designer, Sylvie's expertise will help you create your own special artwork.


I use Tjanting, patterns, colours and transparencies to create artworks for events, commissions and my own range of accessories. I love teaching and exploring with students the versatility of this amazing technique.
