Learn about the art of batik, a traditional Indonesian wax resist method of dyeing with a natural indigo vat. In this course you will get hands-on experience using different ways of creating batik resists with traditional tjantings, brushes and stamps. Dye your unique design onto cotton fabric and learn how to produce different shades of indigo blue to create depth in your chosen design.

Each student takes home their finished piece of batik fabric that is already hemmed, ready to hang up, wear as a bandana or use for another project, plus knowledge to continue at home.

BYO a drawing, design or idea which is 1-3 colours / shades, and your lunch. Wear clothes you don’t mind getting dye on. All other materials included.
