Batik is a world heritage that has been formalized by Unesco. As a product of Indonesia's original world heritage, batik is the pride of the community, thus encouraging one of the Pekalongan batik conservation communities, namely "Omah Kreartif". This research aims to explore community-based batik conservation strategies using case study designs. Omah Creative is a representation of arts education in society, which aims to preserve and develop the heritage of Pekalongan batik. The strategy used is collaboration between the community, batik players, and formal schools.
