What you'll do

You will immerse yourself in the world of Batik and natural dyes. You will start your Batik by using brushes, blocks and, the typical Indonesian instrument, tjanting, to wax. Then you will paint with the splendid colors from cochineal, onion peel and mate, among others. Once the whole batik process is over, you will compose a beautiful collage, which you will take home. While you create your work, you will know another facet of one of the products to dye: Mate, which you can enjoy in the form of a healthy infusion. We will also talk about its history in Chile, as part of popular culture and we will share some of the typical pastries of Chilean gastronomy.

Catalina

Studying design I fell in love with the Batik, millenary art, traditional of Indonesia and "Intangible Heritage of Humanity" (UNESCO, 2009). I have learned of masters from the Contemporary Batik in England and Belgium and have participated of exhibitions in Chile and abroad. I make Batik cultural workshops with the Indonesian Embassy and private classes in my studio. I love teaching! Searching to link Batik and natural dyes, I learned to dye with natural dyes and traditional plants such as mate, which will be part of the project of this workshop.
