You'll be amazed at how much fun making batik can be! You will get to explore and design your own batik fabric as a souvenir or gift to take home. You will make a set of 4 batik serviettes in 2 1/2 hours using 100% Egyptian cotton (17"x 17"). Choose from several batik caps (the stamps used to apply the wax) to create and express your creativity in designing patterns on your napkins. Once the fabric is dyed in the color of your choice, you will learn about the traditional wax removal process. My workshops are not only fun... you'll also learn about the history of batik, use and get familiar with traditional tools in batik fabric making and gain an appreciation of traditional handmade batik. Immerse in Malaysia's cultural heritage all in Miami. Workshops like this helps preserve an ancient tradition and you will proudly go home with your handmade batik gifts.

All tools and materials
We will conduct our workshop at my Aventura home studio where all my works are created. The area is known for condominiums and Intracoastal living. During our break, we can walk along the Marina or sit by the water fountain in the courtyard. My studio is five minutes away from world-class shopping (Aventura Mall) and dining for your enjoyment before or after class. Also, Sunny Isles Beach is just 3.5 miles east.
