Jogjakarta 2013 : Hery's Batik Painting Center - May 2013
On the third day of our Jogjakarta tour (... see Jogjakarta 2013 : Day 3 - A Day Of Palaces), we visited Hery's Batik Art Center. Do not be mistaken, it is not a batik shop, but a batik art center.
Here, they do not sell batik cloth; here they produce nice pieces of batik art. And their are indeed wonderful work of art as can be seen below.

  1. Just landed on your blog, an awesome article about Jogja, my hometown... One thing about Hery's Batik Painting workshop address, it should be Ngadisuryan KT I/27, Jogjakarta. Not in Cirebon, West Java, for sure. As Jogja and Cirebon are 2 different cities :-)
