About the workshop

In this workshop, students get to experience the traditional art of Batik Painting using traditional tools such as the tjanting (see pictures!) to draw desired patterns. Batik is a traditional wax technique for fabric design that originated from Java and retains its popularity today as an interesting medium for contemporary painting.

Participants of the workshop will be introduced to the history of batik relating to South East Asian heritage. Look forward to hands-on instruction on various traditional methods and be guided on the proper use of tools like the ‘tjanting’ and dyeing.
