Batik is one of the Malaysia's unique art and craft. In this activity, you will have the opportunity to create your your own batik master piece and bring back home.

Our instructors will guide you how to use a special tool to draw hot wax on cotton fabric and use brush to paint dye on it. We will guide you how to mix color and create gradient.

No experience is needed and you will have fun.


Upon your arrival at our Gallery, we will introduce you to the batik making process and history of batik. Then, you will start to sketch the design of your batik scarf. We will give you some inspiration and templates as well.

After the sketch is done, you will use a traditional tool called "Canting" to apply hot wax on your sketch. This is a unique method used for more than 100 years to decorate motif on fabric.

The next step is coloring. You can paint your fabric with any of the beautiful fabric dyes we have in our workshop. You can even mix custom colors. Paint your batik with bursts of color and voila you have completed your own batik masterpiece. This an easy process and is fun for the whole the family!
After the drawing and painting part, the activity is done. Our team will quickly dry your fabric so that you can take it home with you. Another option is to use the batik as a handkerchief, in that case, you need to wait for 4 hours or come back the next day to collect your final piece of artwork.
Other optional services with extra charge are as follows:
- sewing the edge of the batik (RM10)
- courier service of batik to your home ( fees depends on location)

Very kids friendly and patience staffs. Kids enjoy the batik draw and paint session, they learn about the traditional art and the process of decorating cloth using the block printing (cap) or hand-drawn (canting) techniques, or a combination of both. Must do activity when visit Malaysia

We started with a short informative tour to learn the steps and process and then we jumped into our design work. We were given the option of freely drawing our own patterns or selecting from pre-drawn traditional templates, which is the option we went with. From there we were given individual instructions and help with applying first the wax and then the paint to the fabric. Everything went super smooth, and they even let us work an extra hour longer than scheduled because we were enjoying the painting process so much. Be warned: if you wish to have a fully finished product to take home, they will need to keep your work overnight to finish drying and prepping it! This was not a problem for us, and they contacted us early the next morning to pick up our work. They were even matted them in cardstock frames!

Fun and enjoyable activity with helpful and friendly staff. This is not a difficult technique to learn in a short workshop and it’s very rewarding to see a vibrant piece coming together as you apply the dyes. There were templates to work from or you could make your own designs, which we did. As we were leaving KL that evening, we did not have the option of leaving our paintings to be sealed and finished, so we made them knowing we would take them away dried but with the wax on them. Our instructor wrote out for me the directions for fixing them at home. Highly recommended as one of the pleasures of being in Malaysia and you also get to shop in the large batik gallery attached to the studio.

I arrived there early and the staff were very helpful. I didn’t do a handkerchief but a one meter scarf. It was an amazing experience. My husband joined me in the activity. The staff were amazing and so helpful. Unfortunately we didn’t realise that we had to wait 3 days for the due to be fixed. We were leaving KL the next day. However the lovely ladies sorted out postage for us so it was sent to us at home in Scotland when it was ready. ( it was an extra charge but well worth it]. We enjoyed the experience so much my husband and I would not hesitate to go back and do another course. Thank you for a memorable activity. One we will treasure.
