Brahma Tirta Sari which is a division of the Babaran Segaragunung Culture House was established in 1985 by collaborative artists Agus Ismoyo and Nia Fliam. The artists in this studio create contemporary fiber art rooted in an exploration of traditional creative process. Brahma Tirta Sari and their artists, have collaborated with artists all around the world. The aim of these collaborations is to understand basic cultural principles underlying intangible cultural heritage in order to utilize it within contemporary creative practice. They have participated in many prestigious exhibitions throughout the world, worked with renowned curators, and their artworks have been collected in world class museums. They have been recognized for their intricate, nuanced and time-intensive contemporary fiber art. The batik workshop covers not only batik technique but also an introduction to the creative process that is part of the intangible culture of Indonesian batik. This class includes body work, the cosmology and history of traditional batik, hand and cap batik, parafin waxing techniques, as well as napthol and indigo sol dyes systems.

As Ismoyo says, "When I do Batik, I am putting my culture on the fabric". For Nia and Ismoyo, Batik-ing (as Nia puts it) is a deep and spiritual experience. Our daughter Nava spent a day here along-with us. We were deeply touched by the...More
