In addition to reaching out to artisans and SMEs practitioners in the regions, Batik Fractal also embraces youth who are engaged in digital technology. The collaboration of Batik Fractal with the Creative Economy Agency (BEKRAF) and the University of Indonesia at the 2019 Felfest UI event resulted in a digital technology masterclass.

Participants, who were mostly young, came from various universities and SMEs in Jakarta, Bandung, and other cities who were enthusiastic to increase their interest, abilities, and creativity in the fields of architecture and design. We challenged them to make the batik motifs of Merak Ngibing and Sulur-Sulur using jBatik software. By using this software, they have learned the design through algorithmic and parametric based logic  which can later be applied to design and architectural works that have strong traditional character.

Selain menjangkau perajin dan pelaku di daerah, Batik Fractal juga merangkul teman-teman muda yang bergerak di bidang teknologi digital. Kerjasama Batik Fractal dengan Badan Ekonomi Kreatif (BEKRAF) dan Universitas Indonesia di gelaran Felfest UI 2019 lalu menghasilan masterclass teknologi digital.

Peserta yang rata-rata berusia muda berasal dari berbagai universitas dan UMKM di Jakarta, Bandung, dan kota lain antusias untuk meningkatkan minat, kemampuan, dan kreativitas di bidang arsitektur dan desain. Kami menantang mereka untuk membuat motif batik Merak Ngibing dan Sulur-Sulur memakai software jBatik. Dengan memakai software ini, mereka telah mempelajari desain berbasis alogaritma dan parametrik yang kelak bisa diaplikasikan untuk karya-karya desain dan arsitektur yang berkarakter dan bersaing secara global.
