Rehana provided a well structured worshop and kept the whole group on track to complete in the time available. My family and I enjoyed the experience and we are very pleased with the pieces we created with Rehana's support. We'd happily attend another of Rehana's workshops

Learn Indonesian Batik for Beginners



I thoroughly enjoyed the class. The materials are sent by mail. U-tube videos were provided to introduce me to the procedure and I was able to have a practice before doing the online class. Rehana was delightful. She answered all my questions and offered many tips and ideas. It was all very easy to follow and understand.

had a wonderful time relearning indigo shibori. it's critical that you do the preparation before class esp. with the various techniques of folding to achieve the design pattern for your shibori.

Rehana is an excellent teacher, she is calm and encouraging. She knows how to impart knowledge and provide appropriate direction. It was a very relaxed environment and an opportunity to learn, create and be mindful at the same time.

Rehana is knowledgeable, patient and nurturing. Her focus is to ensure that students experience success and have the confidence to continue learning Batik. All resources and instruction were well organised and made available to keep referring to. Thank you Rehana for making yourself available after the class also – no doubt I will be in contact!

I have been wanting to learn batik painting. So glad to find Rehana and do it online. Recommend to do the prep work before the live session so you can ask a lot of batik techniques question. Also recommend to do wax on both side as the pattern are more prominent. Rehana is very knowledgeable and will guide you through the process.

Rehana was a great teacher, very patient and knowledgeable. The venue was also good. All materials were included and well set up. The class ran a bit over time as we were a bit slow with our designs but we were not rushed. We all really enjoyed making our batik fabric and will look to do another class with Rehana next year.

I think it was great for a first online class. I think if people drew their patterns on first there would be time for everyone to finish their pieces.
