Mayan-themed Batik by Harry B

Y5/6 are learning about the Ancient Maya this half term.

Look what Harry B created at home, inspired by the topic!!

There are lots of ways to make a batik piece including using washable glue or using wax melted in batik pots then applied with something called tjanting tools.

Here is a simple way to create your own batik at home using wax crayons (as the resist) and thin paint to fill the cracks.

Well done, Harry. I am sure you will have inspired you classmates to have a go!
