Caribelle Batik at Romney Manor


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.

Recreated gardens, a batik factory and expansive island views. A touch of history as you look out over a sugar refinery abandoned when slavery was outlawed.
Interesting historical site

Even if you don’t have a lot of time, this is worth an hour stop and tour. Fascinating history and beautiful grounds... be sure to visit the Jefferson tree and the batik store.
