Peranakan Art Heritage: Batik Printing

The intricate prints of the sarong batik that is worn by the Nyonyas as well as the Batik shirts worn by the Babas are a dying art from the Peranakan art heritage that needs to be preserved. As an appreciation of the unique batik prints, the children used foam board pasted on wooden blocks and made imprints on their paper. They were amazed at the prints and went on to do a ‘Show and Tell’ of their Batik Prints.
