The speaker at our January meeting was Victoria (Tori) Riley talking about The art of Batik
Tori brought along some beautiful examples of batik, and gave a very passionate explanation of the history and techniques of batik – a textile technique peculiar to Indonesia, using a wax resist dyeing method to decorate fabric.
We also decided on our charity of the year for 2018.
There were 2 suggestions, Buxton Mountain Rescue and the women’s refuge ‘Stockport Without Abuse’.
As members didn’t want to choose between 2 such worthy local causes it was decided that we would support both for the next 2 years!
