Watching the batik being made and all the fabrics are gorgeous. Should give visitors especially children a chance to paint without it being part of a class. But a lot of it seemed overpriced but gorgeous

It's interesting to see a handful of artists working on batik with wax and paint, but the factory and workshop are clearly set up to attract customers for the enormous shop selling batik products and other souvenirs.

It was quite easy to walk to this place from the main shopping area of Bukit Bintang. Prices are reasonable - if I recall correctly it is RM50 for an A3 piece that's pre-drawn in pencil. You get to trace the outline with the special wax then paint to your liking. There is a smaller square available and it comes... More

Went here for a batik workshop. Booked online the evening before, but this wasn't necessary. The workshop was great! I made a scarf (90x90 cms) and had so much fun. You can use patterns or freestyle yourself. The woman who teached me was a bit shy bit very helpful and friendly. Great experience! Your batik is ready the next day,... More

We visited as part of a private guided tour and were delighted to be shown into the art room where hand painted batik wall hangings were being created free hand. Impressive to watch. The colours used are virulent and striking. We (inevitably) browsed the shop and were very pleased with the choices we made to take back to the UK.... More

The staff was very helpful, yet gave me the opportunity to create my own batek scarf from beginning to end. I appreciate her patience and guidance. A must-do in Malaysia!

I've visited Malaysia a number of times and wanted to do something different on this trip so we decided to do a batik class. The staff were extremely helpful and informative and my family and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience. I would definitely do this again and recommend it to anyone visiting for their own personal souvenir.
