Today, I decided to join my mum to an indigo batik technique workshop turned into mother-daughter weekend quality time at one of the most prominent maker spaces in Jakarta: Indoestri (after wanting to join their workshops for a while.
I found the workshop to be incredibly insightful and our tutor, Bu Rini (founder and owner of Kana Goods), encouraged us to go beyond our comfort zones and conventionality by inventing new patterns that reflect our personality and style. Thus, here I am with my contemporary batik pattern of the eyes, haha.
On the other hand, indigo batik is one of our nation greatest manifestation of natural resources that goes in harmony with our creativity. I believe there will never be the same piece of indigo batik fabrics since everything was made carefully and even a slight change of circumstances can differ the results.
I couldn't ask for a better weekend than today, because I learned a lot.
