Passionate about Batik, Tori Riley is the guest today on the Stitchery Stories podcast. Tori shares her story of being inspired by Batik as a young child living in Java, and how her love of it has led her to running workshops and talks, whilst being a busy mum of four!

  • Who else wanted a colouring job when they grew up?
  • an inspiring gap year absorbing the Indonesian culture and drawing
  • influences from a childhood spent living in several places around the world
  • combining batik and embroidery
  • making it easy to started with an idea in a workshop
  • how to do batik
  • the challenge of marking out your design for batik
  • labelling our work so future generations know more about it
  • what equipment is needed for batik making
  • how to apply the wax
  • what type of dye to use for batik
  • how do you get the wax out afterwards
  • when developing some film created performance art

And so much more!
