Batik Canting Workshop:
Traditional Technique: A Batik Canting Workshop focuses on teaching the traditional art of Batik, which involves using a tool called a "canting" to apply hot wax in intricate patterns onto fabric.
Precision and Skill: Participants learn the delicate art of controlling the canting to create detailed and precise designs. It requires a steady hand and an understanding of traditional Batik motifs.
Wax-Resist Method: The emphasis is on the wax-resist method, where the wax prevents dye from reaching certain areas of the fabric, resulting in a beautiful contrast of colored and non-colored sections.
Heritage and Culture: Participants gain a deeper appreciation of the cultural significance and history of Batik art.
Duration: 2 Hours Workshop.
Batik Coloring Workshop:
Contemporary Approach: In a Batik Coloring Workshop, participants have the opportunity to explore Batik art with a modern twist. Instead of using wax, they directly apply color to the fabric using our 3 basic batik dye.
The prewax design is random from floral, abstract, traditional , geometri, anime and modern design.
Freedom and Creativity: This workshop offers more creative freedom, as there's no need to worry about the wax-resist technique. Participants can experiment with various colors and designs, making it accessible to artists of all skill levels.
Vibrant and Quick: The coloring method allows for vibrant and quick results, making it an ideal choice for those who want to create beautiful Batik-style pieces without the complexity of traditional Batik.
Contemporary Artistry: It's a fantastic way to encourage contemporary expressions of Batik art and is often well-suited for those who enjoy more immediate artistic gratification.
Duration: 1 Hour Workshop
Both workshops offer unique experiences. The Batik Canting Workshop celebrates tradition, precision, and cultural heritage, while the Batik Coloring Workshop encourages creativity, experimentation, and a contemporary approach to Batik art. The choice between the two depends on one's interests and preferences in the world of Batik.
