The ancient art of batik is a method of decorating fabric that orginated in the Far East. By "painting" on cotton or silk with melted wax and dyeing the fabric repeatedly with cold-water dyes to build up a wide range of colours, beautiful designs can be created, from flowers to sophisticated landscapes as subtle as any painting. The author shows in a number of step-by-step pictures exactly how she creates her pictures and wall-hangings. Roses, poppies, magnolias, seascapes, Scottish hills, French villages are all possible as themes.
