On Friday, November 22nd 2013, in coordination with Batik Cantik Aurora (BCA), housewives in our village were studying about how to make batik. This activity was a part of PNPM Pariwisata (a national program for citizen empowerment) that we received in 2013.

In terms of making batik, our skill were still at beginner level. Also, we were still looking for unique batik pattern. But, for a beginning, these kind of things were special; since batik is an art that have a lot of philosophy.

To master the philosophy of batik, also the process of making a unique kind of batik, we will need a lot of time. But, every long journey was started by a first step, right?

==========================================================================

Bekerja sama dengan Batik Cantik Aurora (BCA) Yogyakarta, hari Jum’at 22 November 2013 ibu-ibu di dusun kami belajar membatik. Ini merupakan pelaksanaan sebagian PNPM Pariwisata yang kami terima di tahun 2013.

Dalam hal membatik, taraf kami masih pemula, motif khas juga masih kami cari bentuknya. Sebagai langkah awal, ini merupakan sesuatu yang istimewa, karena batik merupakan karya seni yang syarat dengan filosofi.

Menguasai batik dari segi filosofi, proses dan menghasilkan batik khas memang sebuah perjalanan yang (bakalan) panjang, akan tetapi bukankah ‘perjalanan panjang dimulai dari langkah pertama?’
