A one day workshop producing beautifully painted Easter Eggs using traditional Batik technique.
Attendees will paint intricate patterns with a sharp point which has been dipped into hot wax, and then the eggs are dipped into liquid dye, after which we remove the wax and the pattern appears.
This course is suitable to total beginners but not is not suitable for children under ten as we deal with hot wax. Participants will be guided through all the stages, and will end up with two or three beautiful Easter decoration. This is a fun course and you won’t want to stop once you get going!

All other equipment and eggs will be provided.
This one day course will be led by Hanna Ward, Hanna is a Diploma Iconographer and has researched and studied iconography and Orthodox Church painting under several masters from Greece, Russia, Romania, Finland and UK.
Hannah has a Masters Degree in Sacred Traditional Arts from Prince’s School of Traditional Arts, London and she has finished the four year diploma studies in iconography and wall painting under iconographer Aidan Hart in Prince’s School’s Liturgical Arts Program.
Hanna is especially interested in Church wall painting and has been to Romania to research fresco painting under Church painter Adrian Iurco. Hanna has also assisted Aidan with the fresco of the Transfiguration at Leeds.
Hanna has also researched sacred geometry and underlying symbolism in Church architecture as she is an interior designer and has spent her working life in architectural design and drafting. Hanna has painted and taught traditional Folk Art for many years which has given her strong technical skills and foundation for mastering complex icon and wall painting, which is now her calling and passion. Hanna believes that when creating contemporary icons it is important to obey liturgical principles, whilst allowing creativity, in order to uphold this very special image of prayer.
Hanna teaches icon painting and works for commissions.
