Description

Discover the traditional techniques that go into creating unique Indonesian batik art with this special private workshop. Learn from an experienced local artisan, practice waxing, dyeing, and designing vibrant colors into cloth, and become a part of this ancient living tradition.

A hotel pickup and comfortable ride brings you to the traditional batik factory where you meet your instructor for the day, an expert artisan with a wealth of knowledge to share. Observe the intricate techniques and get familiar with the materials and utensils used in the process, and then get hands-on and start creating your own batik from start to finish.
