Create your own unique souvenir of Malaysia
For a truly unique and special memory of Kuala Lumpur, you must visit Jadi Batek and create your own batik masterpiece. After a brief history of the art, and some instruction, you are guided through the different steps of batik and at the end, you have your own beautiful wearable memory. Your teacher is there to answer your questions, correct any mistakes and make sure your art is as beautiful as possible. For planning purposes, give yourself three or four hours, enough to make the scarf and time to wander around the batik gallery and do some shopping. As well, your creation will need finishing ( boiling away the wax, fixing the dye) and finishing the rough edges) (a charge of about $3, which might require two days. When you return home, you will have a lovely scarf or handkerchief to remind you of your lovely holiday.
This is a very special place, as every scarf hand painted is unique - every single scarf is different - my wife purchased a silk scarf and the artist was on the premises so we had our picture taken with him
The process is painstakingly slow and so it makes every scarf that little bit special
interesting experience with lots of joy
We visit there in mid Aug and enjoyed a good quality time there. The introduction and tour of the little studio was a bit in a rush, but it doesn't bothers us. The teachers helped us to choose the pattern where they have plenty for you to pick from if you have no clue to start, gave us ideas on the color and help a lot on the wax drawing. It's a very unique experience and you can bring home something very memorable. Would be happy to join for another class if in the neighborhood again sometime in the future.
