Our instructor learned the art form from a Master Batik Javanese artist in Singapore where she lived for a year. She has taught this class at summer camp and her students love “batiking.” This class is open to all, including young people 10 to 17 with their guardian. (Both parent and young person must register.) Please bring a hair dryer (if you have one), large plastic trash bag, and several plastic grocery shopping bags.
