Beautiful batik

Yogyakarta, Indonesia

Students from the Stamps School of Art & Design at the University of Michigan traveled to Yogyakarta, Indonesia, during the summer of 2013 to work with traditional and contemporary Javanese artists. The trip was led by Stamps lecturers Charlie Michaels and Emilia Javanica.

“After a day long workshop in traditional Indonesian batik techniques from a Batik Kelik studio in Yogyakarta, our group sat back and watched our newly created pieces dry in the sun. Our time in Indonesia was filled with learning and observing traditional and contemporary art forms while collaborating on new visual projects with local artists,” Michaels said.
