This half day excursion offers a hands-on opportunity to create your own batik handkerchief using the traditional methods; an access to the Textile Museum; and shopping opportunity at a retail and wholesale center of batik while being in the capital city, Jakarta.
This excursion is perfect for those who have particular interests on batik-making yet have very limited time to visit other destinations in Java that are famous as the center of batik; or for those who are going to other destinations in Indonesia other than Java.
Embark on an excursion to learn more about batik fabric and the intricate making-process. Join a batik workshop to have a hands-on experience in creating your very own batik using the traditional methods â€“ the canting and simmering wax. Your dedicated guide will pick you up at the hotel at 08:30hrs. Located right next to the Textile Museum, you can explore the museum as well to see its collection of different fabrics from all over Indonesia before your workshop starts. Complete your workshop and take home your piece of artwork as a souvenir. The excursion proceeds with a shopping stop at a retail & wholesale center of batik before returning back to the hotel.
