Create Your Own Batik Masterpiece
At LSI's Batik-Making Classes, you will explore the simple and exciting process of batik-making with a traditional artisan, anxious to share his knowledge and enthusiasm. And with your mentor's gentle and patient guidance, you will create a rewarding piece of art to bring home from your travels to Indonesia.
The action takes place at a traditional batik studio.
Batik is a technique for creating designs on fabric (usually cotton or silk) using dyes and waxes. Dyes of different colours are applied to cloth in several stages, with wax being applied between each stage to protect areas from unwanted colour.
With origins in China, India and Japan, techniques of batik making were introduced to the island of Java early in the last millennium at the time of the Chinese Tang Dynasty.
Today, Batik is overwhelming viewed as a distinctly Indonesian artform, with original Batik creations from Indonesia fetching the higher prices than Batiks from anywhere else in the world.
LSI's 'BATIK MAKING' CLASS is one of several activities and excursions offered through

Throughout the year, LANGUAGE STUDIES INDONESIA offers Foreign Language Immersion Programs for learners from around the globe.
