Last June (11-12/6) I involved with Batik Workshop in Cooroy Butter Factory Sunshine Coast. The workshop was held on the weekend and attended by 20 participants from around the coast. Thanks to Sunshine Coast Regional Council – Nina Shadforth as the Gallery Curator who was invited me.
Hartono, a batik artist from Sragen, Central Java who was invited to come to Sunshine Coast for a week led the workshop after share the knowledge of batik process for floor talk in Noosa Regional Gallery few days before.
The workshop divided into two groups from waxing, colouring with brush (colet technique) and dyeing it. Each participant receives a complimentary canting and two batik projects.**
