Whether or not you consider yourself artistic, experimenting with batik will lead you to new discoveries about yourself and your creative process. With an understanding of the basic techniques of batik, you can explore a contemporary interpretation of this ancient medium. Prepare to play with the unpredictable, open yourself to the foreign culture of Indonesia, and work intensively on several pieces of batik. Also consider the possibilities of an alternative Baby Shower Batik Party making squares of batik to create a memorable baby quilt – or a Batik Bridal Shower to create a set of tablecloths and napkins made by a group of friends and family to be treasured forever.
