|my first batik!|
|mom's first selfmade batik|
Laksita Mardhawa is a school for national or international citizens(of all ages,) who wants to learn javanese traditional dance and music. I learned how to play "gamelan" ( Gamelan is a musical ensemble from indonesia) too! It was a fun and unforgettable experience for me. I never love batik that much until i saw the process of making it and did it by myself, it was not as easy as i thought! The instructor said that a flawless handmade batik took 3-4 months to finished and what i did 2 days ago was just a (very) small part of it. The founder of Laksita Mardhawa said "Your generation never embrace your own traditional culture while many people from the other side of the world willing to pay a huge amount of money to master it and claim it as theirs". Those words were a slap in my face. That's why i decided to post this on my blog. Its July already people! Time flies too fast...
