Batiks: Spectacular Textiles of Java
Join docent Bianca Larson in an exploration of Indonesian batiks (wax resist-dyed textiles). We will look closely at batik designs and patterns and learn about the people who created and use them. We’ll also consider the ways trade and migration have added new elements to these intricate and stunning works of art.
