Applications for 2025
The Temenos Academy is a teaching organisation dedicated to the ‘learning of the imagination’ and awards a bi-annual scholarship to facilitate artists studying the art of batik. It is envisioned that this will be primarily, but not exclusively, to support overseas research, study, field work and travel in the field of batik creation.
The award will be granted by a joint panel, appointed by the Temenos Academy and the Batik Guild, and arranged by mutual agreement. The recipients of the award will submit a short report to the Trustees of the Temenos Academy and to the Batik Guild for publication in the magazine on completion of the project.
The next award of up to £2,000 will be made in 2025 with the deadline for applications being 31 January 2025. Application forms will be available from the Batik Guild Secretary from October 2024 onwards.
For further information, and to request an application form, please write to The Secretary, The Batik Guild via our Contact Us page.
Congratulations to Ummi Junid from the UK, winner of the 2023 Thetis Blacker Temenos Award. She will undertake research into batik-making using natural and waste materials in Kelantan, Malaysia.
