What you'll do

Create your own unique batik scarf with Malaysian artist

I can't wait for you to be immersed in the beautiful world of batik that many say is meditative. You will explore Batik art with a Malaysian Artist and paint a pre-designed Batik scarf on 100% cotton fabric. No art experience necessary.

With at least 48 hours notice you can request a custom design by sending an image for Munirah to prep for your batik painting experience. For ideas check out my Instagram account: terataimalaysia

You will learn all about batiking from the history to the process and techniques from around the world - we can get as advanced or stay as simple as you want.

You will observe intricate tjanting techniques and get familiar with the Tjanting tool. Get hands-on and add what you learn to your batik piece. The painting process is relaxing and truly is the best part of your experience.
I will provide you full guidance from start to finish.

After class, Munirah will remove the wax and will deliver your hand painted scarf while you’re still in town or mail it to your home address. A wonderful, one of a kind, Miami vacation souvenir without having to fly 10,000 miles to Malaysia.

Where you'll be

We will conduct our workshop at my Aventura home studio where all my works are created. The area is known for condominiums and Intracoastal living. During our break, we can walk along the Marina or sit by the water fountain in the courtyard. My studio is five minutes away from world-class shopping (Aventura Mall) and dining for your enjoyment before or after class. Also, Sunny Isles Beach is just 3.5 miles east.

Munirah is a terrific teacher, able to communicate her knowledge and love of the batik process. My friend and I did batik many years ago, but this class was conducted with professionalism and insight that gave us the opportunity to create something beautiful and exciting. We loved the time we spent with her.

I thoroughly enjoyed my batik painting experience with Munirah. Munirah is very friendly and welcoming. She took the time explaining each step and the tools used, as well as some history of batik. Munirah has traveled around the world to learn the different techniques of her craft. I would definitely do it again.

One of the best things I've ever done on vacation. Not only was it amazing and fun, I'll have a great souvenir. Instead of wearing it as a scarf I want to get this framed. I would do this again and again because each is unique.

This is an action packed class where you will be working with the dyes and textiles for the entire three hours. Wear clothes that you don’t mind getting a little dirty. You will love it!
