Making Batik Safe for Children

Abstract

The main purpose of this project was to make batik production readily applicable, participatory, beneficial and less injurious to children between the ages of 4 to 10 years using the child art as motifs. The qualitative research approach was used and under it, the researchers employed the experimental and descriptive research design. Purposive sampling was also used to sample the drawing and paintings collected from children between the ages of 4 to 10 years. A prepared questionnaire was applied to interview the target group to help address the following objectives. To make batik production readily applicable and less injurious to children between the ages of 4 to 10 years and to offer opportunity for children to express their creative art in batik making for self-gratification and pleasure. The study examined these two research questions: ‘How can batik production be made applicable and less injurious for children’ and ‘how can children be engaged to express their creative art in batik making’.
