What you'll do

You'll be amazed at how much fun making batik can be! You will get to explore and design your own batik fabric as a souvenir or gift to take home.

You will make one handstamped batik bandana in 90 minutes using 100% Egyptian cotton (22"x 22"). Choose from several batik caps (the stamps used to apply the wax) to create and express your creativity in designing patterns on your bandana. Once the fabric is dyed in the color of your choice, you will learn about the traditional wax removal process.

My workshops are not only fun... you'll also learn about the history of batik, use and get familiar with traditional tools in batik fabric making and gain an appreciation of traditional handmade batik.

Immerse in Malaysia's cultural heritage all in Miami. Workshops like this helps preserve an ancient tradition and you will proudly go home with your handmade batik bandana.
Other things to note
We'll be working with fabric dyes and batik wax so it's best not to wear your best clothes.

Had an awesome time with Munirah learning about batik and then actually making some! Her studio was a really welcoming and beautiful space, and I loved this experience. I had a great time learning how to hand stamp the fabric, and am anxious to see my finished napkins! Definitely recommend!

Designing Batik fabric was a fun and fulfilling experience. I went from knowing almost nothing about this art form to making 4 wonderful designs that I was pleasantly surprised by. The tools, techniques, and cultural / historical context of Batik are explained well, and by the end I felt confident in my ability to take an idea and make it real. Can't wait to get the fabric pieces in the mail!

Absolutely fantastic experience! So much fun to spend time creating four beautiful pieces, Muni guided me throughout, and she will expertly see the creations through to the finish and mail to me. Muni is exceptionally creative and enthusiastic! If you are a creative person or even if you don’t think you are, take this class, you will love it!

We enjoyed the class and learned about the Batik process. I wish we could have seen the entire process but appreciate time would not allow it.
