Batik Painting Workshop @ Jurong West Primary School~ by dinohafian on Oct 13, 2010.
Batik Painting Workshop were introduced to the art club members of Jurong West Primary School. 30 students from P5 and P6 (11 – 12 years old) were my students throughout the 8 sessions.
The session begins with an introduction about batik by my teaching artist Mr Dino. Students also learn about the myths of the batik cloth.
The students will use the tjanting and try applying the wax themselves. Students have to be extra careful, especially when there is hot melted wax on the table. Our instructors are on hand to keep reminding the students as well as guiding them the proper techniques.
