Using Tjap Stamps & Basic Batik
Kathie's two and a half hour instructional DVD is now available and is chock full of projects and demos. She does work mostly on art papers, however we found her instruction to be applicable to working with fabrics as well if you already know how to do the dyeing for the batik. You'll learn the 4 secrets of making a good print every time, different techniques for different effects, how using other papers change the look and which papers to try, printable files for an Idea Book with many projects... plus a small project showing her basic batik technique... and much more!

Once again Rosi Robinson takes us on an insightful tour through the beautiful world of batik. You may have had the opportunity to read some of Rosi's books but now you can see the techniques as they happen, almost as good as being in one of her classes! Four hours of inspirational batik workshops that are sure to appeal to both teachers and students of batik. This is the step-by-step Batik DVD that we have been waiting for! A bonus - learn to batik on both paper and fabric!

Disc one is all about the "Paper Workshop". Rosi explores the ways to use waxes, tools and dyes to come up with some incredible effects on many different types of paper. Wall art, greeting cards and illuminated lamps are covered in this DVD.

Disc two covers the "Fabric Workshop". Here we are shown the uses of traditional and non-traditional utensils on both silk and cotton. Rosi teaches us how to use batiking tools from around the world as well as things from around the house! Along the way she answers many of the most common questions about how to create your own batik and what to do when things go wrong.
