Widya is a master-batik designer originally from Java. His very well-equipped and laid out studio space is in the rear of the family compound. Starting with being picked-up on the doorstep of my hotel, the entire day was truly special. His studio assistants are there to guide you step-by-step through the whole process. Even if you haven't an artistic bone... More

My boyfriend and I took the batik workshop here and we both loved it. Even my boyfriend, who joined reluctantly, enthused about it at the end and even wanted to go a second time when we saw the fruits of our labour. The class was great and the people who were there to guide us were really patient. It also... More

We sort of dropped the ball on booking this ahead of time and thus had to be squeezed in last minute in the afternoon. Insider tip- don't do as we did and book ahead, morning is best as the batik needs the sunshine to develop the color and to dry. Still though we had a fantastic experience. The teachers were...

Batik lessons provided by Widya's Batik were very interesting and we were able to learn a little bit more about a relevant Indonesian tradition. The lesson takes 5 hours approximately, so it is really worthy, and you can keep with you the piece of batik which is a memorable gift. However, I would suggest more explanation on painting techniques as... More

My granddaughter and I followed a driver through a doorway, not having a clue what we were about to encounter. Five hours later, we were tired, but thrilled with the whole experience. Complete novices, we joined several other people who were already intent on their pieces. We were quietly and expertly guided through each step and soon became involved in... More

The entire experience of creating a piece of batik from scratch and taking home a completed beautiful work is gratifying. It is a long workshop but definitely worth it. Lunch is available at an.extra nominal fee. I am a vegetarian and was well looked after. The staff are friendly and very helpful. You can.choose your designs or create a new... More

We signed up through email easily three days before, got picked up at our hotel by Widya himself, and enjoyed making our own batiks in his lovely studio!✨ Even if you have low confidence in your artistic abilities, Widya has your back. Each step is clearly explained and you are given time to practice before having a go on your... More
