I bring my son to learn the batik painting workshop. We pick up the t shirt and paint. We spend only Rm127.20 and paint together with my son. Very reasonable price. We have a fruitful day and bring home the batik knowledge.
I came here with my mother and partner. It was a lovely experience. The staff were friendly and helped us through the whole process. Food at the cafe was nice too! Very affordable - we did the scarf painting at just 127 myr. Would visit again!
