Produce less waste and breathe new life into an old t-shirt. Learn about materials, equipment, technique, design concepts, and natural dyes to reinvigorate your wardrobe.
Believe it or not, the earliest examples of tie-dye originate much earlier than the days of peace and love from the ‘60s, but rather between[masked]AD in Peru. Regardless of the era, tie-dye is still the grooviest way to add design, color, and form to any fabric. Participants of this workshop will learn tools and materials, design techniques, natural dyes and plant origins. Create and take home your own tie-dyed tee.
Extend the lifecycle of a tired tee and fall in love again. Not only will tie-dying a shirt improve your look, but it will improve the life of your surrounding eco-system. Did you know? It takes over 600 gallons to manufacture a cotton tee. Consider the water involved in growing cotton, processing, manufacturing, packaging, shipping and receiving tee. When you repurpose an old tee, you save the energy and resources that would otherwise go into making a new tee. It’s a simple action with big positive effects on our environment. Now that’s groovy!
