Study opportunities at Institut Kraf Negara (National Craft Institute)

Yup! This time around, they impressed me.
Mind you, am not that easy to impress tau.

#InstitutKrafNegara, you’ve outdo yourself. Kudos.
I am gonna make it short, simple and sweet. Am not gonna sugarcoat this as this is a legit and valid info and I am all for it. And I personally believe this is useful for you school leavers out there and those that love craft and wanna fill up the holiday gap. Let’s do this.

Owned and managed by Malaysian Handicraft Development Corporation, National Craft Institute (NCI) or Institut Kraf Negara (IKN) is set to help youngster and those with high interest in handicraft to be part of their family. Courses offered varies from 4 hours to 7 days course covering Batik Craft, Weaving Craft, Wood Craft, Metal Craft, Ceramic Craft and Rattan Craft. One that fascinates me is the copper tooling craft. Having a few at home makes me wonder how one crafts it and I was able to experience this at Kompleks Kraf Kuala Lumpur recently.

Most of craft course duration is between 2-3 years for certification and diploma respectively. During this period, students will learn about processes and tool, history/origin, technic, applications and etc. Aside from this, you will also learn English, Islamic study, basic computer skill as well as applications. As one progresses, the course subject intensifies. Fret not my friends, there are also classes/short courses for you and me. There are also 4 hours course to learn batik ikat.

For those that are interested, some of the facilities provided for those taking certification and diploma are accommodation that can fit approximately 320 pax; 4 per room. Cafeteria, common area, auditorium, sports field, racquet ball court, theatre among others. Aside from this, the college provides library, computer room and college buses. Not forgetting for East Malaysia students, flight tix to Kuala Lumpur during enrollment period as well as flight home upon course completion.
