Textiles & Batik

Batik with Ketut Sujana – Ubud, Bali – on the way to Sanggingan

Batik with Ketut Sujana – Ubud, Bali – on the way to Sanggingan

Like meditation in action, the art of Batik centers the mind and liberates the heart through creativity. Explore the simple and exciting process of batik painting. It will enable you to create a rewarding piece of art to bring home from your travels in Bali.

Your teacher is Bali batik artist Ketut Sujana. In this unique batik painting workshop Ketut will help you use this ancient art form to create contemporary designs. Ketut's gentle and patient instruction helps the student discover in physical form the images that all of us carry in our hearts; his workshops are specifically tailored for each group or individual.

All the action takes place in the studio behind Ketut's gallery. The studio is located in Lungsiakan on the main road just outside Ubud, Bali's cultural and artistic center.

There's plenty of room to move about and when you need to take time out and think about your master piece, the rice fields are in the back garden where planting and harvesting goes on in the traditional way.

Come an join Ketut for a transformational afternoon of Bali Batik Art.
