Batik Workshop The thousand-year-old Batik fabric dyeing process produces artfully detailed lengths of fabric. A warm mixture of wax and resin is created, the artist draws a design on cotton or silk, and then paints in the enclosed area. The method is deeply rooted in Malaysian culture and artistry so if you’d like a traditional handicraft experience, attend a workshop at Jadi Batek Gallery. Workshops take students through the process from start to finish, enabling them to create their own works. In addition, six full-time artist produce batik clothes and decor for the adjoining shop.
