In Java, Indonesia, Batik is part of an ancient tradition, and some of the finest batik cloth in the world is still made there. The word Batik originates from the Javanese tik and means to dot. Batik is similar to tie and dye, in which instead of tying cloth in knots/patterns, we use hot paraffin/bees wax to create different patterns on the cloth. The applied wax resists dyes and therefore allows the artisan to color the cloth selectively.  

A tradition of Batik is found in various countries including countries of Indian peninsula, south east Asia and Africa.


This workshop, Batik 101, is divided into 3 parts. You'll learn the following:

 Part 1: 

  • How to use brushes to create different patterns
  • How to use an original "tjanting" pen to put your signature on your masterpiece.

Part 2:

  • How to prepare salt baths for Dyeing.
  • How to do even Dyeing (one or two colors).

Part 3:

  • How is the wax removed from the cloth. We'll share 2 different techniques of de-waxing the cloth.

What to bring: We will provide all the material required.
