Juneteenth and Father’s Day Batik Workshop


Sunday, June 20

1–4pm Where

HRM Courtyard


Be inspired by the two quilt exhibitions on view at the HRM and learn the art and craft of batik, a fabric decorating technique used to make traditional African and contemporary Africa-inspired clothing and homegoods. Make your own quilt squares, adorned with decorative and evocative Adinkra symbols that represent concepts. Artist Kay Douglas brings the community together to practice a non-traditional batiking method using glue, fabric, and dye, to create a community quilt celebrating Juneteenth . . . and the dads in our lives!
