Art in Kuala Lumpur

Founded by friendly artist Emilia Tan, this is the best place in KL to learn the skill of batik – using wax to paint with coloured dyes on fabric. On offer are demonstration sessions and DIY batik classes for adults and children (weekends are popular with families). There's also a shop selling unique products made from their own batik fabrics.

Also here, the Green Tomato Cafe serves good coffee and all-day Western breakfasts.
