It has been a long time not to update or share anything about the activities of batik. Well, hedabatik is still alive, unfortunately the off time occurred because I just passed the deep valleys after my husband passed away back in December 2014. Being able to support him in the battle of melanoma cancer that spread to the brain took me into the challenged journey but enrich my life.
Focus on the family became the priority, shifted everything else down.
I choose to take a very slow process to make myself return to batik’s heaven in creating or hosting clinic and workshop. During 2015 I did Batik Clinic and Workshop at Cleveland High School Brisbane, Noosa Council Gallery and University of Sunshine Coast. In term of personal productivity, creating the contemporary batik artworks still run.
For March 2016, I just did Batik Clinic and Demo at Gallery 159 Brisbane to support the exhibition of Batik, Tapis, Tirai, Songket and Tampan Collections. Thanks to Peter and Janet De Boer who owned and operated the gallery. Thanks to include me in the exhibition! Thank you Dr. Maria Wronska for the connection! It was great and had a fantastic time catch up! Wine and cheese for the opening afternoon was excellent!
I guess it is time to return to a long delay project! The educational mission to spread the beauty of batik through the real works behind batik must be delivered! The agenda of exhibition must be aligned and get into it! Slowly but sure as slow as to create hundred dots of batik!
