Caribelle Batik at Romney Manor

Old Road Town, Basseterre

Learn the unique process of Batik, a dye method using layers and layers of wax to create patterned clothing and fabrics, as well as artwork. The Caribelle Batik, located just outside of Basseterre, provides half-hour Batik lessons for anyone interested in trying their hand at the one-of-a-kind process.

The Manor itself is a colorful building overlooking the ocean and resting on 12 acres of flower-filled botanical gardens.
