Meet the Artist: daily presentations at ARTWORKS 2015
Tuesday 15 September 2015: Helen Dougall – Batik: painting with wax and dyes
Helen Dougall will be demonstrating batik techniques at Blackthorpe Barn on Tuesday 15th September 2015. Helen will have some small experimental textile pieces to explain the intricate wax and dye stages of the art of batik, a fascinating process which achieves vibrant and detailed results.
Helen has also been working on a special project with school children based on poppies, to commemorate the First World War.
Fifteen 9 and 10 year olds have been visiting Helen’s studio, working with batik. Helen will be sewing all the student’s pieces together to produce a large wallhanging, which will be displayed in Walsham le Willows village hall. The Poppy project has achieved Lottery funding.
Helen Dougall will be at the ARTWORKS exhibition 10am – 4pm on Tuesday 15 September 2015.
