Ancient Art of Batik in Woodford 2017

Finally I could sit down and do a little update about hedaBATIK’s activity. It’s been quiet in the term of public works but some artworks has been created.

I think it’s so privilege to share about Ancient Art of Batik in Woodford 2017. Back in 26 December 2017 until 1 January 2018, I managed to host 6 days batik workshop!! It was fantastic week, every day was full on as the workshop was booked out. I really thank to you who did more than one batik workshop during Woodford Festival! Thank you to my sons who gave huge supports, involved and assisted to make the workshop went well.

I thank to the best organisers of Woodford Festival!!





You’re so amazing, the level of professional event management were so friendly and so supportive, I found everything was above and beyond, the whole atmosphere during the festival was incredibly wonderful.

Everyday was interesting day! Everyday was booked out. The workshop was full on with excitements – we did know how to create a beautiful mess!

Personally for my highlight was, I experienced camping for the first time! The first night was so wet and stormy night!!

If it is not wet and muddy or dusty and dry – well, no point to go to Woodford Festival!!




Octo-Ber-BATIK 2011

That’s right! Octo-Ber-BATIK 2011 coming soon.

Octo-Ber-BATIK is the way to celebrate Batik Day, it is originally initiated by My Indo Connect and then the idea of hedaBATIK came along! Even though Batik Day occurs on 2 October but we are going to celebrate it on 22 October because we dedicate October as a month of batik. So, any date of October and celebrate Batik Day, then we call Octo-Ber-BATIK.

Literally, ‘berbatik’ in Bahasa Indonesia means ‘wearing batik’. All fit in together beautifully.

This year Octo-Ber-BATIK is the year 2 of celebration since Indonesia Government declared Batik Day on 2 October 2009 after recognized by UNESCO. We would love to hold the event of Octo-Ber-BATIK every year to keep batik spirit alive.
