About the Instructors: Agus Ismoyo (Indonesian) and Nia Fliam (American) have been working collaboratively since 1985. Ismoyo’s ancestors were batik makers in the court city of Solo in Java, while Nia originally explored dye resist techniques from Africa and Asia. Their fine art batik studio, Brahma Tirta Sari in Yogyakarta, Indonesia was founded on the commitment to explore the technique and symbolism of traditional Indonesian art. Through this artistic collaboration, they have been exploring the rich traditional root of the ancient batik textile tradition of Indonesia.
