Learn to Draw and Paint Batik

Summary

Participate in our batik demonstration, and understand the history of Batik. Learn about the canting method and how to control the tjanting (also known as Batik canting knife pen) to draw designs onto the material, usually cotton or silk.

You will also sketch your own design with the assistance of our instructor. Some of our most popular designs are the floral pattern collection (especially the hibiscus), butterflies, and cute animals (cats, birds, rabbits). After the designs are drawn and the wax is dry, the material is painted using brushes.

During the course, you will also learn how to adjust the intensity of the colours using layering techniques. You can even attempt a translucent effect by adding water droplets to the material before painting.

At the end of the day, once your artwork is dried, you will leave with your masterpiece and a proud piece of Malaysia's heritage!
