Explore batik making and create your own imaginative designs in our Malaysian Batik Class.

Batik is a traditional art form of Malaysia that has been preserved for centuries. The unique designs are made using a removable wax-resist method, before the fabric is dyed and the wax is removed. In this hands-on experience, you will learn two different methods of batik making: canting (using a pen-like tool to create free form patterns) and block patterns (using our special batik blocks to form intricate designs). You can then design your batik artwork, color it, and bring home your personalized product at the end of the day!

Your participation in Batik Boutique's Batik Class also contributes to the livelihood of underprivileged women across Malaysia,. Apart from bringing home a handmade souvenir, you are leaving something behind - the chance for our batik artisans to gain a sustainable income and skills.

We also provide lessons to make journals, silk scarves, foldover clutches, pareos and cushion covers,. Let us know what you want to make as an add-on and join our Malaysian Batik Class today.

    It was lovely to attend this Malaysian Batik class, thanks Amy for attentive to teach me how to do it. She is not only attentive in explanation but also helping me when I started to feel my batik scarf out of shape. I felt enjoyable doing this workshop. It was fun and relaxing. Good for introduction of batik class and for made in hand souvenirs. Thank you so much~
