Community Batik


Community Batik is a highly engaging group activity. It is a fun introduction to the art and craft of batik for everyone to have fun while discovering our South East Asean cultural heritage and to create a collective work of art. It is popular at public events and appropriate for corporate team-building sessions.

Ideal for cultural learning events and activity for foreign exchange students.

Instructors will set-up on-site, the length and duration can vary according to the your requirements. Artist instructors will talk through the process and answer questions raised. The artwork will be completed collectively and installed for permanent display in the school.
