artists at work

PhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek


Semalem kami jalan-jalan ke Jateng Fair, acara tahunan yang biasanya diadakan antara pertengahan Juli hingga pertengahan Agustus untuk menyambut hari kemerdekaan tanggal 17 Agustus.
Masih seperti acara tahun-tahun sebelumnya. Tapi kali ini kami nemu sesuatu yang menarik. Sebuah toko batik membuka pelatihan batik, dan membolehkan pengunjung mencoba sebagian kecil dari seluruh proses panjang pembuatan batik (bayar, tentu saja, Rp. 20.000).

Last night we went to Jateng Fair, an annual event held from medio July until medio August to welcome our indepence day, 17 August.
It was just any Fair we have come to before. But this time we found some thing quite interesting. A batik shop had a batik painting course, and let people to try to do a little part of long process doing the painting on batik fabrics (we had to pay, off course, Rp. 20.000 or about USD 2,5).


Ibit mencoba membatik dengan canting dan malam yang dipanaskan
Ibit tried to paint the batik using 'canting' and the hot melted wax



ini hasilnya setelah diwarnai
this is the result after coloring




membatik dengan malam cair panas kayanya agak berbahaya buat Ar dan Ir. jadi yang jaga standnya membantu proses canting-nya, jadi mereka tinggal mewarnai saja.
I thought hot melted wax is a little bit dangerous for Ar and Ir, so the shop keeper helped them doing the 'canting' process. they just had to do the coloring

tadinya kupikir Ir ngga akan cukup sabar. tapi aku salah. hehe... aku lupa kalau Ir pernah juara lomba mewarnai, jadi pastilah dia bakal sabar kalo cuma nggambar beginian aja...
at the beginning I thought Ir wouldn't be patient enough to do this. but I was wrong. I forgot that he once won a coloring contest. so doing such thing must not be so hard for him

bener-bener cucunya mbah Sungkono mereka ini. darah seni-lukis beliau mengalir di tubuh anak-anakku...
they truly are Pak Sungkono's grand-kids. his 'painting-art blood' flows in my children's bodies...
