June 14 to 17 | 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m

The island of Java in Indonesia, where it originated, has brought batik its greatest acclaim. Participants will be given a short history of batik and learn its different techniques, step by step. Spring flowers will be the inspiration for creating a design on cotton (available to purchase, or you can bring your own plain, light- or pastel- coloured natural fabric—cotton, silk, or linen). All the required materials (including the cotton fabric, canting tool, wax, natural and synthetic colours, and a gold finishing colour) will be available at a cost of $30 on the first day of the class.

Instructor : Avy Loftus, batik and shibori artist and art educator, finalist of the 2021 Charles Biddle Award for exceptional contributions from artists who have immigrated to Québec

About The Museum's School of Art
After a long and unpredictable winter and spring, take some time for yourself and sign up for one of our classes. The summer program follows an intensive schedule of four consecutive half days or full days (with some exceptions), so that you can take advantage of any time off you may have. Hope to see you here at the Museum!


Material : unless stated otherwise, a list of the materials you will need will be sent to you before the class begins.

Reservation terms : maximum of 10 participants. There is a minimum of 5 participants for each class. If the minimum number is not reached, the class will be cancelled.

Cancellation policy: cancellations made seven (7) business days or more before the first class of your registered workshop will be refunded in full, less a $50 administration fee. No refunds will be granted for cancellations made less than seven (7) business days before the activity begins, unless the cancellation is made due to unavoidable circumstances, in which case fees will be refunded in full.
