My second day in Tembi, Yogyakarta ,was such a treat. Tatang and his driver Mr Wiji took me to see 5 different Master batik makers in 3 batik villages, where batik is the main employment and happens in every household. I was welcomed into each home as a guest and fellow batik artist, each time my lovely new friend Tatang interpreted in detail and allowed me to have a proper conversation with these very skilled and fascinating people. It was thrilling to be in the heart of batik country to experience the generosity of such humble,talented people, who all insisted on feeding me with home baked soya crisps, tiny just picked bananas, snake fruit and black hot sweet tea or coffee. I accepted their hospitality graciously even though I don’t drink coffee and certainly not black, or tea sweet ! I was able to take many close up photographs of batik work in progress and tried making a short film clip too. The day was exceptionally productive for me, all thanks to meeting Tatang, such a kind man who refused absolutely to take any money ! I have only experienced sincere kindness from the Javanese people.
