What to do if it rains
The Batik Studio
Henderson Reece is well-known among art lovers for his fresh, vibrant and cheery batik creations, and excels at capturing familiar local scenes and iconic elements in this globally-treasured medium. Mainly self-taught, Henderson’s work can be found in collections in Europe, America and the Caribbean.
Inspired by his passion and craftsmanship, so many people asked Henderson about the possibility of learning to make batik themselves, that he began offering workshops. A day under his tutelage is BB$400 (US$200) per person, including all materials, and lunch. His protégés-for-a-day leave with a batik of their own design, which they often mount and frame for their homes.
Henderson and his stunning portfolio can be found at HP Batik Studio - a breezy, hillside house with a great view, at Earthworks Pottery Complex. Learn more about his artistic journey, the workshop and batik as an art form, on his website.
