What is modern contemporary batik? It’s a brand-new kind of art which combines traditional Malaysian batik techniques with modern art. This fun and therapeutic workshop is suitable for anyone, even absolute beginners.

Through this 3-hour workshop you will create your own batik art design while learning the basics of the art of batik canting.

What to expect:

  • Learn about the history of batik, how it is made, and the tools & materials needed for batik canting
  • Learn skills for “tulis” batik by using hot wax and a special “tjanting” tool
  • Experiment with mixing colours to produce the right tone and shade
  • All materials and tools provided
  • A beautiful piece of 30cm batik art to take home

Get creative and immerse yourself in the fascinating world of Batik and create your own artwork that is bound to impress!
