Make the scarf you’ve always wanted in this batik class! Quiquia Calhoun is going to tell us all her secrets about the batik process and you don’t want to miss out. These scarves are beautiful and the process is both fun and intriguing! Quiquia has had an amazing 40-year teaching career in Oklahoma City public education. In her inspiring words, “No art is wrong; all individuals should face the challenges of play and learn. The visual language is integrated with our social values that should be explored and integrated with our novel inventions and discoveries.”

Due to the size of the scarves and the amount of table space in the ARTSPACE studio, there are limited spots for this workshop. Claim your place now!!
