Batik painting for families at Kuala Lumpur’s Central Market

The Central Market (Pasar Seni) in Kuala Lumpur

We love batik painting and Malaysia is the perfect place to give it a try. We’re quite the regulars at our local centre, but this time we wanted to try out a new place, and I thought I’d share it with you all.

“Ainna Artwork” is in the Art Annexe and offer Batik Painting Workshops.

Nestled in the Art Annexe of the Central Market you’ll find “Ainna Artwork” offering Batik Painting Workshops.

Choose a canvas and then get creative!

As with most studios of this kind you can choose your canvas from two sizes and then paint to your heart’s content. Not only is it inexpensive, it’s also a very relaxing activity to do, where you can be creative and then take your artwork home with you.

We had a bit of a demo as to how to blend the colours!

We went along when my parents were here visiting and I can honestly say that all three generations of our family really enjoyed it; we watched the master at work and then set off on our own pieces, at our own pace.

The fact that ‘the grandparents’ then had the perfect souvenir of their time in KL was the icing on the cake!

No surprise that my little man chose yet another of The Twin Towers

Combine your batik session with a wander around the Central Market and enjoy the vibe and the colours of all the stalls; it makes for a lovely half day activity for the whole family! S x

Once your artwork is finished an you can have it framed to take home!

  1. Hello, How do we book a session with you? I need to book a batik painting session for 2 children (6yrs and 7yrs) in August, 2017. I am trying to plan our summer activities over the holidays. Could you please give me your contact details?
    Thank you.

    1. Hi Sara! Glad you found my blog and I’m happy to help where possible. Generally speaking you don’t need to book in advance; you can just pop along and get painting! I don’t run the Batik sessions, I write a general travel blog on KL but can send you the link to their FB page should you wish to contact them directly. Thanks for stopping by, Sarah


      1. Hi Sarah, Thank you very much for your extremely prompt reply. Thanks for the link, I will contact them nearing the date maybe….just to make sure my grand kids get to experience some local culture….. art form.
