Introducing Modern Batik Art Workshops for Professional & Recreational Artists

Modern Batik Art is a revolutionary art technique for producing detailed design on fabric. This art form has elevated a basic craft to fine art status. While still using the traditional wax and dye method, it incorporates several new techniques that provide extraordinary flexibility to any artist’s work. The workshops’ artistic director/instructor is renowned Modern Batik artist, David Kibuuka; co-creator of the Modern Batik Art technique. Over the past 20 years David has owned and operated successful art galleries in Toronto and Santa Monica (California).
