Batil Printing

Afican Batik

Year 5 students from Beechwood Primary have been attending Sir John Hunt for the last 3 weeks to take part in Art sessions. They will be coming up every week for the rest of the term to get involved in activities in Textiles, Science and Music. They have been studying different African patterns to build an understanding of a different culture.

They have collaborated to create designs and learnt a new skill to create batiks that are inspired by Africa. As well as producing batiks, students have created wax resist work too. The students have worked so hard and are thoroughly enjoying themselves each week; it is clear that their confidence has grown. This is shown though the beautiful work created.
