Loved meeting the actual artist who was so humble and cheerful. Bought a very reasonably priced batik wall hanging. Great and friendly service!

My wife loves batik so while in Bali we stopped at Goak Batik. They were so kind and willing to share their time with us. Not only did we see the batik design and creating process but my wife got to sit down and try her hand at adding the color and wax on a design. The people at Goak were very patient and seemed genuinely pleased to share their unique creative talent. Aside from taking her handiwork with her, my wife loved going through their store and choosing from the many different fabrics a Goak creation to take home with her. Very pleasant experience.

I was in Bali with my daughter's family. One day we took my grandchildren, ages 10 and 12 to Goak Batik for a Batik T-shirt making workshop. The kids are homeschooled and while in Indonesia we wanted to do something that would give them a taste of the culture. The workshop was great fun and even though we did not speak the local language and the owner/teacher, Mr. Gusti Sujana does not speak a lot of English it was a very successful adventure. The Batik process involves hot wax and very hot water. Even with a 10 and 12 year old they were able to safely handle the wax and Mr. Sujana takes care of the hot water step necessary to melt the wax. The T-shirt is a great option for kids because they end up with something they can actually wear. Artistic ability is not required because you can use a pre-drawn design or you can do one of your own. My grandson wanted to use the logo from a computer program he uses so he drew that while the rest of us used designs drawn my Mr. Sujana. In the t-shirt class you don't get to experience the entire batik making process because you cannot dye the background but it suited our purposes quite well.
We were given a traditional Balinese snack made of pounded, sweetened sticky rice and bottled water was also provided. After the class we did some shopping in the store that is downstairs from the workshop area. They have throw pillow covers, clothing, wall hangings and other batik items for sale.
One thing I would recommend is that you have transportation back to your hotel arranged prior to your visit. This will save you some inconvenience and some money.

I visited with a group of 6 ladies and we had the best time creating our own piece of Batik under the watchful eye of patient experts who were keen for us to have a presentable item to take away. The process was carefully explained before we embarked on our own sample.All staff under the guidance of Gusti were so friendly.

We did a day's batik course here that we booked through the cooperative art gallery in Ubud.
The guys were really helpful, explaining how it was done, taking us through the process and letting us create our own piece of batik, which, thanks to their help along the way, looked pretty passable!
They then showed us how the masters do it, and some of the other techniques used to create batik.
They also gave us some local snacks to try - yum!
It was a really friendly, seemingly family run workshop and super welcoming! Cannot recommend enough!

On a recent holiday to Bali I really wanted to try Batik, my best friend came under sufferance but seriously we both came away so proud of ourselves!
Under professional guidance we produced a small quality batik cloth very quickly.
Although I draw and paint at home, my friend does not and we still managed to not only enjoy the process but produce respectable works of art!
Can't wait to visit again next time and attempt something bigger!

We spent five days at the lovely Beji Sari villa in Singapadu and after driving by Goak Batik a few times decided to stop in for a visit...and we are so glad we did! Mr. Sujana and his son Wahde did a wonderful job explaining the batiking process to us step-by-step and letting us try our hand at making a simple batik. Trying the batiking process was very fun and really helps you appreciate just how difficult fine batik is to create! After learning about the process, we went into the shop where they have many beautiful items, all hand-made one-by-one in the traditional style and process. Very high-quality fabrics ranging from fine cotton to silk and designs that you won't find in the touristic batik stores. We picked up some beautiful men's shirts, sarongs, wall hangings, table cloths for a very fair price and it felt great to support a local artisan and his family who have worked so hard to create this amazing place. Highly recommended if you are in the Ubud area.

Batik is one of the cultural heritage of Indonesian batik and learn about it is great. Guided by Mr. Gusti Sujana which is one of the batik teachers in Bali and I think he really understand batik very well. For those who want a different vacation in Bali, I suggest visiting Bali Batik Goak and try their batik tour class. Very nice, thank you Gusti Sujana
