Highlights include several rare examples of Cipedes (now incorporated into Tasikmalaya), once famous for a distinctive, rich red which has not been produced for over fifty years. 130 pieces will be presented during the exhibition with 3 rotations. 34 - 40 pieces will be on show at a time. There will be an extensive catalogue.

14 Oct 2018 All day

Please join us and and Slow Fiber Studios™ this October 14th for a Celebration of Batik.  Our program includes a film screening, many lectures, a Balinese dance celebration and a trunk show with artisan crafted silk and cotton textiles and home accessories from Central Java. The theme of the day-long event is 'Batik Dongeng' or "all batik tells a story". From the rich patterns once forbidden for commoners to wear to colonial and religious influences in the pattern design and motif, centuries of traditional and contemporary batik making can be discovered by admiring and understanding the language present in the cloth.

Many priceless works of batik art will be on display from both private and public collections. Lecturers will provide in depth analysis on batik -- as a form of fashion, protest, amusement and delight.  A film presentation will describe the process of making batik from start to finish with rich visuals provided along the way.
