Tie-dye Workshop

tie-dye6Last week in the craft workshop students learnt to tie-dye and achieved some amazing results. We used white t-shirts and pillow cases and bound them in a range of patterns: stripes, bulls-eye, donuts and spirals.

We then used applied liquid dyes to our fabrics and microwaved them so that the die would set. Unfortunately some our dyes lost their vibrancy after the final rinse so next time we will be sure to heat them for longer. Still we think the results were fantastic! Students plan to use these as Christmas gifts which we will wrap before the end of term.
