Batik Masterclass in Janda Baik: Embrace the Art of Canting

I am Intan Suria, a passionate batik artisan and instructor specialising in luxe batik workshops. Batik, being a traditional art form, holds a rich cultural heritage and artistic significance. It is an ancient dye resist hand printing technique where wax is blocked/painted on a piece of fabric to leave gorgeous prints as the end product. It is my pleasure to offer engaging and interactive batik workshops that allow participants to delve into the fascinating world of batik creation.

Nestled amidst the verdant forests and tranquil ambiance, Villa Bayu in Janda Baik provides the perfect setting for a creative and inspiring batik masterclass. This rainforest retreat is a scenic 45 minute drive Northbound from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

During these workshops, participants will have the chance to learn the history, techniques, and intricacies of batik through hands-on experiences. From designing their own batik patterns to applying hot wax and dyeing processes, participants will witness the captivating transformation of fabric into their unique works of art. Whether you're a novice or a seasoned artist, this unforgettable experience promises to ignite your creativity and deepen your appreciation for this ancient art form.

Here are some key features of my batik workshops:

  • Expert Guidance: As an experienced batik artist and instructor, I provide step-by-step guidance, sharing tips and techniques to help participants develop their batik skills.
  • Sustainable Materials: I ensure that all workshop materials, including fabric, dyes, and tools, are of sustainable and premium quality.
  • Customisation: I understand the importance of tailoring workshops to meet the specific needs and interests of clients. Whether it's a bachelorette party, a team-building activity, a creative outlet for employees, or an educational program for students, I am flexible in customising the workshop to align with your objectives.
  • Engaging and Interactive: The workshops are designed to be engaging, interactive, and enjoyable. Participants not only learn the technical aspects of batik but also gain a deeper appreciation for the art form and its cultural significance. Read about the workshop I hosted at The Datai here.
