Batik and Button Badges with Chip in

Join Chip in and use their hand-made batik fabric to design and make your own badge.


Batik is an ancient Indonesian art form that creates patterns on fabric through a technique of using wax-resist dyeing. This activity is perfect for the whole family.

Chip in is a place-based volunteering project for young people aged 16-13 within Blackburn with Darwen. They aim to break down barriers and offer volunteering opportunities across a range of sectors including Art, Culture, Heritage, Environment and Sport. They are based at The Bureau Centre of the Arts in Blackburn.
