Colorful Batik Canting

It is so interesting when we had a chance to learn how to canting a batik. By a help from a professional batik maker Mr. Hamdan Hasmadi, to teach us the basic in canting batik.The one day canting class was held in Felda Soeharto which stated in Hulu Selangor, and the purpose was to spread knowledge in canting and also to catch interest among the participant here. Surprisingly some of them were good and talented in canting even though this is the first time for them in canting batik.First step of learning process in batik was sketching motives as flowers.Then they should know how to handle and use canting. Its quite easy when Mr.Hamdan first showed how to canting.But then to try your 'first time canting' should be on a paper!Then they go on real cotton.I was really surprise to see the participants were so easy doing the canting. can you believe it was their first time?Now goes to the best part, which is coloring!They learned so fast even though some of them didn't like canting before!And now I can see that they love doing canting.Just see the result. How they are so passion in canting their own batik. I'm so impress of what they all had done today.
In the meanwhile, me and Hafiz (the other designer) took our own effort to create an artwork in canting. Hafiz and me sketch directly on a piece of cotton stretcher and apply canting. I'm coloring some blue and we didn't even planned how will this batik is going to be.
Finally we end up like this! Not a good work, just a good try for a first time learner! Mr. Hamdan Hasmadi is a well known batik artist in Malaysia, his canting work is very fine and had its own identity. Hamdan has his own special techniques in making batik, difference from others batik maker. Hamdan batik is so alive, as the composition and colors he applied really catching eyes.

Hamdan batik works also published in local batik magazine as to show that Hamdan work is alive in Malaysia's batik industry.
I really admiring his work and really lucky to learned his touch in canting, and for those who wanted to see more of Hamdan Hasmadi batik works can contact me at fcendvsy@yahoo.com. Anyway thanks for visiting my design blog, and will update you guys more after this. Bye!
