Family Batik Workshops
Side-by-side with your child, learn about the land of Indonesia and the magical art of batik. Experimenting with traditional tools, techniques, dyes, wax, and cotton, everyone will make several individual batik pieces to be sewn together into a family quilt or creation, as you wish. Prepare to make mistakes and masterpieces while discovering your and your child’s own creativity. It’s like Batik Camp!
