“Batik” is a traditional process of dying whole cloth with beautiful patterns that originated in Indonesia.

Get up close to the Balinese batik guru who will guide you through the process and share with you the philosophies behind some of the most common batik patterns.   Start with applying hot wax to a stenciled design on a fabric canvas, then apply the colors to the patterned fabric.

I highly recommend this activity ! Mark and Ayu welcomed me at their place with a nice breakfast and a lovely Batik class ! I really enjoyed learning from Ayu about the Batik technique. Ayu is a great teacher and explained me clearly every steps to make Batik. It is a wonderful activity to express your creativity and to go back with a unique souvenir from Bali :) Besides, the hosts were super nice and offered me transport even if I wasn't living in the picking area.

I was picked up from my place early so that we could collect another couple before heading to this beautiful place. We were brought to a beautiful art shop and craft area in a rice field. It poured rain while I worked on my batik and the couple worked on jewelry pieces. They gave adequate instruction and help to get started, and then let me be to work on my piece. I was brought complimentary coffee and banana tempura. While my piece was drying, I played with a brand new puppy and walked through their shop without being haggled to buy anything (which actually resulted in me buying something instead of feeling pressured and walking away, like I usually do). Things were clearly marked with prices so I knew I wasn’t being taken advantage of for being a single white female. The driver patiently waited for us to be finished and drove us back to our hotels. Lovely people, beautiful place, and I loved being able to try my hand at an authentic Balinese craft.
