Teratai Malaysia was born out of Munirah Rimer’s desire to share her Malaysian culture and explore the world of batik.
Today, Munirah teaches batik painting to students in her home studio as well as various venues (art studios, retirement communities, offices, private homes) primarily in South Florida – including Miami, Broward, and Palm Beach.
She is also able to share that passion for batik beyond South Florida through her batik art painting kits. Each kit is handmade by Munirah and contains everything needed for a student to learn and enjoy batik painting. Batik art painting kits are available directly through Munirah as well as through the Teratai Malaysia website and can be shipped anywhere.
Students of all ages find Munirah’s teaching and kits meditative and therapeutic in addition to enjoyable and fun.
Munirah and her partner, Jonathan Ogden, continue to add to their knowledge of the batik craft by travelling throughout the world meeting and learning from masters in Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Laos, and more.
