Batik Workshop [1-4pm]

August 10 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Batik textile techniques with Dias Prabu

Join contemporary Indonesian artist Dias Prabu for a fun and creative 3 hour batik making workshop. He will talk about his own work, and introduce you to traditional and contemporary wax relief and textile colouring techniques. Participants will create their own design on a tote bag to take home, using hot batik wax and canting tools.

Dias Prabu is an artist, painter, muralist, and creator of batik tulis (hand-drawn batik) living and working in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Prabu employs the technique of traditional batik tulis to create large-scale hand dyed textile works as a vessel for storytelling and connecting with his ancestry.
