18 Oct Introduction to Tie Dye Workshop Series
Introduction to Tie Dye Three Part Workshop Series
Have you ever wanted to learn how to Tie Dye? Well now you can at our three part Introduction to Tie Dye workshop series!
The process of tie-dye typically consists of folding, twisting, pleating, or crumpling fabric or a garment and binding with string or rubber bands, followed by application of dye(s).
Believe it or not, American hippies did not invent tie-dye in the 1960s. It’s an old, old craft that’s used in one form or another around the world. The Shipibo and Yine tribes of the Peruvian Amazon have a resistance dyeing technique that is similar to tie-dye. In India, it’s called bandhani.
There is so much you can do using tie-dye techniques. Our facilitator Jan will be leading us from the basics in the first session, to more advanced techniques in the second and third.
You are welcome to attend any of the classes individually, but we recommend attending all three to get the most out of Jan’s knowledge, plus there is a discount if you attend all three sessions.
