Deking Batik Class
Reviewed May 1, 2014

I am a student studying abroad in Bali for the semester and I have had the pleasure of attending one of Bapak Deking's Batik classes and I cannot recommend it enough! Bapak Deking is a very patient and talented teacher and helps you to produce wonderful work.

I couldn't be more pleased with this batik class. Batik can take many hours or days for a complex design, yet Deking had everything set up to guide anyone through making an entire first piece in just a few hours. His decades of teaching experience became obvious as he softly and clearly guided me through each step. At the same time, because I had tried batik before he showed me some tips that I will be able to use in the future. I would recommend this to beginners to intermediate, young to old.

I took the class through ARMA and the space was nice - shady and calm. I would like to have the chance to take the workshop at his home to enjoy the additional time and family hospitality. This was one of the highlights of my time in Ubud.

Our whole family did a batik class with Deking and his wife in their studio and it was wonderful. The class sizes are small - it was only us and one other traveler so there was plenty of hands-on help. Each of us ended up with a finished piece we were proud of - even our 8 year old! They served traditional refreshments during the class, the pace was relaxed and it was a creative afternoon spent blissfully off the Ubud tourist track. His studio is a secret gem - not in the guidebooks.

Deking was a great teacher, and a charming host, too. We had a great time learning batik from him at the ARMA Museum in Ubud, and would highly recommend any class taught by him. You'll go home with a unique piece, and know that you made it!
