Last May, I visited Institut Kraf Negara that situated at Rawang
I was so lucky to have my talented blogger friend Rizal with me the whole session, he is the senior lecturer in IKN. It's a guided tour together with him and he introduced all the art departments here in details. Among there are art departments for batik, wood craft, rattan and ceramic. But I have a particular interest in rattan art as I have never witness such innovative creations by our local craft students before. Each piece is excellently designed & executed. I especially have an eye for the yellow bloom rattan basket. shown above.
My whole journey was throned with lots of excitement & surprises, I was given some beautiful souvenirs to bring home. Indeed, it's a satisfying visit and I am hoping to make another visit again!
