Have you ever wanted to learn Batik Painting but don’t know anything about it? Well, then you are in luck, as the Visual Arts Centre Singapore offers a batik painting workshop for beginners that teaches you the basics of batik painting as well as the history of batik.
But first, here is a brief introduction to the world of batik:
You do not use pen and paper for batik. Instead, you use cloth instead of paper, and wax instead of ink. When beginning a piece of batik work, you would draw a sketch using pencils of the design desired. Then, you would use a wax funnel – a tjanting, filled with hot melted wax, to trace over the patterns on the cloth. This type of batik art is known as batik tulis – which means writing, completely using wax by hand with the tjanting tool. From this method, you can see the changes in the variation in size and shapes of the wax flowing.
Our teachers will explain the history of batik in a more in depth manner during the workshop.
Although the Visual Arts Centre Singapore offers a plethora of art workshops, our batik painting workshop is one of the most popular. Batik painting is a unique heritage of Southeast Asia and produces wonderful results. Not only is Batik easy to learn, but anyone can use the technique to produce beautiful pieces of art. Not to mention, during our workshop, you will be introduced to such techniques by our professionally trained teachers. Our instructor will demonstrate how to use the wax before guiding the students individually to avoid confusion. Furthermore, you’ll receive step by step guidance from the teachers to create exactly what you envisioned.
Our workshops can be tailored according to your event requirements. You can bring your friends or your entire company to the Visual Arts Centre Singapore for a few hours of relaxing bonding time. All materials will be provided so you won’t have to bring anything at all! In addition, you can take breaks anytime during the workshop as free refreshments and snacks are provided.
The workshop is held at the gallery of the Visual Arts Centre Singapore. You can relax in a spacious yet cozy glass room located just outside Dhoby Ghaut MRT exit A. The Visual Arts Centre is surrounded by greenery and allows natural sunlight to enter the gallery.
