Awaken your creative potential through Java’s ancient Three Worlds Creative Process with tradition keepers Agus Ismoyo and Nia Fliam.
This workshop brings you two of Indonesia’s great textile traditions: an immersion into the spirit and practice of batik from Java, and a hands-on experience of the archipelago’s indigenous natural dye traditions. The workshop is suitable for beginners, intermediate and advanced practitioners alike.
The practice of batik is deeply rooted in the cultural history of Indonesia, with techniques passed on orally through the generations. According toAgus and Nia, part of this oral tradition is Java’s ancient Three Worlds (Tribawana) creative process. With the potential to open a path for pure creative energy within each person, this three-fold process teaches participants to look for the source of creative inspiration within themselves, to develop an intuitive connection with the natural world, and to discover a personal spiritual connection with the creative source.
