FOR ALL TEACHERS I would like to offer you an opportunity to enable your students to experience a different art form and enrich their learning.  I am a fully qualified teacher - Cert Ed, ACP Dip, BA Ed, who has previously held a senior management position. I also have a TEFL qualification. I am available to spend up to a week in your school teaching all ages and abilities. I can use your current theme of work and weave it into the art work, taking the NC into account.
Two-day workshops can be undertaken but would produce very limiting results educationally and could involve only a small number of students due to safety factors and dyeing and drying times. 3-5 day workshops are of more value as a larger number of students could be catered for and the whole educational process up to the end results, would be more valuable. Generally speaking, over a period of 3-5 days I will cover: a brief history of batik the methods for making a batik the materials needed and their characteristics creating a design and its transfer to cloth the process to the completed project

Over the longer period each student will produce a personal booklet as evidence of work  achieved. I deliver the teaching in an interesting, progressive way utilising the support of local IT facilities, a PowerPoint presentation, worksheets and also a digital camera. Obviously the depth to which I can go with this subject is dependent upon the number of students, the ages and the amount of time I can spend with them.
