You'll be amazed at how much fun making batik is!
Discover how to batik even if you've never done it before.

Batik Workshop

Our workshops are not only fun...
You'll also:

  • Learn about the deep Javanese philosophy behind some of the batik patterns.
  • Gain a greater appreciation of our mission to not only preserve these ancient traditions, but to make sure this rich cultural heritage continues for generations to come.

The short workshop makes it easy to create a simple batik on cotton in only two hours using the canting, cap or both.

Longer classes let you add more layers of wax and more colors. Our workshops do not teach theory. They will spark your interest and give you direct, hands-on experience of making a batik.

Group Size:

1 100! That's right. We can accommodate single participants all the way up to groups of 100 people.

Who Can Participate?

Batik Workshop

We love sharing these techniques with kids in playgroups, school children of all ages, foreign exchange students, club members from various groups, even customers who just stop by the showroom.

In short, anyone can give this a try.


We're very flexible and can work around your schedule for individuals or groups. Groups of more than 5 participants must contact us in advance. Still, according to the size of your group and our schedule, you might call in the morning and set up a class for that afternoon or the next day. Of course the more notice you can give us, the better. Hours are from 9 am 2 pm
