Yesterday I was back at the Sadu House with a friend for an exhibition of Indonesian Batiks. The opening of the event began with a speech by the Indonesian Ambassador and then there was a fashion show, bazaar and workshop.
We did not attend the workshop but did learn about the lengthy batik process.
Batik, the technique of decorating cloth with wax and dye, is considered both an art and a craft. The process of adding wax and color is repeated over and over until the final result is achieved.
October 2nd is National Batik Day in Indonesia, celebrating the anniversary of batik being recognized by UNESCO as a "Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity".
Even the cake rolls were decorated batik style.
I'd love to visit Indonesia some day but not sure if that will ever happen.
Hope your Tuesday is a good one.
