Unique Batik: Throw Pillows


Hosted by Kiersten Gallagher

- Weekly on Thursdays May 11th, 18th, 25th, 3:00-4:00pm


Batik is a popular textile art from Indonesia that centers the mind and liberates the heart through creativity. In this 3-part series, you will decorate a pillowcase using a simple batik painting process. One pillowcase and pillow will be provided. You may bring a second pillowcase to create another design if you wish. Please plan to attend all three sessions to complete your project.

This 3-part workshop will be held on: 

  • May 11 - Paint a design on a pillowcase using a DIY non-toxic fabric glue
  • May 18 - Use fabric paints to color the pattern around your glue design
  • May 25 - Remove the glue to reveal your final design

Suggested donation: $30 (includes one 18"x18" pillowcase, pillow and all materials)

Our programs are open to the community, and tailored to meet the needs of people affected by cancer. Classes and workshops are free or low cost on a pay-as-you-can basis, ensuring that our programs are accessible to everyone.
