    Memorable experience
    Prema_N, May 2023
    The instructor was clear as we were first timers. He explained the different steps and the do’s and donts before we began. The tips during the process was useful too.
    Batiking is fun!
    Nora_E, May 2023
    We had a great time while learning a lot. And, I think we will actually try to get better at this when we get home. We found the teacher very inspirational as well as highly skilled. it was a wonderful afternoon.
    Beautiful batik
    Darren_F, Mar 2023
    A beautiful artwork was revealed to be a fairly easy process and a great way to unwind and de-stress.
    Learn to batik
    Miriam_H, Mar 2023
    the batik lesson itself! The teacher was wonderful. one on one. It clearly was not a studio meant for tourists which made it all the more fun. Clearly in an office building mean for the locals.
    Great experience!

    Very hands on and no fear for first timer who may turn to repeater. Extremely enjoyable experience and good opportunity to know very rich culture. Wonderful teacher and very pleasant artistic studio.

    HI Naoko, We are indeed happy to have you on the workshop to experience and understand our culture. Do frame up the completed batik on the wall. Hope to see you in the future.
    Wish I could do it over
    PAYNESHA_A, Apr 2022
    I would recommend as this was something totally new to experience. The actual process however was not well explained. I am english speaking so I do not know if that was a factor, but there was no explanation beyond- pick a pattern, this is the tool you use and how to use it. then she walked away- still near-by but doing her own thing. After the first step, she then brought out the paints and said some technique to blend colors. I wasn't aware there was a correction tool for step 1 or things I could have done to improve my project. My take away was fine but had I known more info it may have actually been nice.
    Response from Host, May 2022
    Hi, thank you for the feedback. In future, we ensures our instructor goes through all the process step by step so that participants understand the techniques well. We don't either recommend the correction tool in the basic batikking as the scrapping done on the wax will cause damage to the fabric, and the color painted on it will not be even.
    Great class

    Fun way to spend a couple of hours learning some basic batik painting and wax techniques. Got to take home a couple of pieces that had been nicely finished for us by Kamal Arts too!

    Amanda_L, Apr 2021
    Learning how to use the wax and the different colours to paint and how to blend. And the trick to melt the wax after. Was a nice chill time. Thanks for the teacher's patience too.

    Sitisholeha_K, Apr 2021
    I had a great time with my mum. We learned a lot about batik! It was a very therapeutic moment. I’m glad I’m able to learn how to make and draw batik. My mum had a lot of fun! I will for sure come again and bring my siblings and friends along!

    Lovely chance to try batik -recommended
    Vivienne_P, July 2019
    Lovely to have had an opportunity to learn how to work with batik. Gave a basic introduction. Delighted with my beginner attempt! Found the venue to be a bit noisy and would have liked some history on the craft of batik. More Detailed instructions to the workshop room would have been helpful. Recommend.
