One of the reasons batik was introduced to the R. W. W. Art Centre is because of it's practicality. Batik is so versatile one is only limited by their imagination in how many ways one can use it.
The other (main) reason Batik was introduced was to prove that through any artistic methods beautiful creations can be made if the artist is given the confidence & freedom he/she needs to create. By providing the artists with this sense of security in their own artistic abilities, the R. W.W. batik artists created masterpieces of expression with their own Egyptian village as inspiration.
