Discovering the Beautiful Story behind Canting Sketches
Visiting the Important Places in the Development of Batik in Java
Batik has become a part of the daily lives of Indonesians, while also being something that we are hugely proud of. UNESCO has given batik an acknowledgement as a Masterpiece of Oral & Intangible Heritage of Humanity. This recognition has also inspired more Indonesian women to explore further about the stories and philosophies behind batik motives from around Indonesia.
This exploration will start from the East of Java to the middle part of Java, ending in Pekalongan. Participants will meet experts of the arts and culture, along with local batik artists while discovering the stories and secrets behind the variety of batik motives of each area. Remember to also shop for some batik while experiencing the traditions and daily lives of the local society!
