January 2018 – a brand new year

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!
