What you'll do
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.
Munirah is an Artist whose batik art workshops represent a tribute and a commitment to the authentic culture of her birthplace Malaysia. She grew up in northern Malaysia, attended boarding school in Kuala Lumpur, and later received her Bachelor’s and Master’s degree from the University of Miami. She is passionate and proud to host this 3 hour journey into the beautiful world of Batik. Tjanting is a delicate process, requiring tremendous patience and steady hands. Through her workshop, she makes batiking accessible, fun and enjoyable for adult and children, with no experience necessary.

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.
