Batik: A Taste of Traditions

Published by


First and foremost, I’d like to apologize for disappearing for a long period of time. Though my updates were coming from Instagram, I personally feel terrible that I had not been able to keep to my goal of maintaining updates here.

Anyways, with regards to my Post title. I am very proud to share the opportunity to run a workshop at the Yayasan Sime Darby Art and Music Festival 2018 (YSDAF2018). It was an honour to be able to run a batik workshop with people outside of my workspace. Though it was a short it was a truly memorable and encouraging experience.

Batik is truly a traditional art that is recognised an icon of Malaysia. This is one of the many others that have now become the favourite of the Western world. However, contrary to what many say and believe, it is an art that carries very few practitioners. As for me it was for pure love and passion for creating a masterpiece through one of the many forms of fabric painting!

Perhaps in another post I shall share a simple step for you to create your own Batik piece.
