Personalize It!

Learning to batik is fun and relaxing and great for a wide range of ages. No prior knowledge is needed to make a beautiful creation. While we suggest you make a reservation for your group in advance, you can stop by any time the store is open to check availability.  With the help of our artist instructors, each guest chooses an item to batik, sketches a design on paper, learns to draw on fabric with wax and then hand paints their item.  The final step is done in the studio and your finished creation will be ready for you in about 10 days (you can come back to pick it up or we can mail it to you).  The entire process for an individual takes roughly 1 hour (parties take a little longer!) and the finished pieces become treasured wearable art - think favorite t-shirt ever! For more information, call 718.622.4446 or contact us via our form below. We look forward to getting crafty with you! 


Hiho Batik has an amazing art space that is perfect for hosting groups for special events with friends, co-workers or birthday parties. At parties, each guest personalizes a design that is either his/her creation or chosen from one of ours.

We host: Birthday Parties for kids and adults, Baby Showers, Team Building Events, Bachelorette Parties, and more!

Our Batik Parties start at $40/per person and include the following:

  • Use of Hiho Batik Studio Space for 2 hours. (The art studio is considered private when there are 8 or more participants.)
  • One item per party attendant to personalize. Each participant will either pick from a design or create his/her own design to Batik onto an item.
  • A personal party artist attendant.
  • Stickers for all guests.
  • A wide selection of party music.

Ask us about our Goody Bag Bar and Decoration & Table Top items available for purchase!

Please note: finished products from events may be picked up between 10-14 days after the party.

We also offer other party options! All materials for activities are included and all projects recycle Hiho Batik fabric scraps resulting in unique and colorful products. Please note that specific materials used will be modified depending on age of participants.
