JADI BATEK

Try your hand at batek painting and take home a unique souvenir that you made yourself. Jadi Batek offers classes everyday where their friendly artists will teach you the basics of batek painting and you will be free to create your own masterpiece. All the required equipment such as a piece of cloth, wax, the chanting, colour and a brush are provided when you sign up for the class.

And if you need some help to create a design, there are many motifs that can easily be copied. Choose from floral patterns to cartoon characters, animal motifs to the famous twin towers. There will even be artists on hand to help you. The classes normally take about an hour per lesson to complete.

You can come back the next day to pick up you masterpiece, which will be framed in a paper frame with plastic.
