Contemporary Tie Dye with Lucie

This class has passed
This class has passed

Tie-dye took the western world by storm in the 1960s with bright, bold patterns fit for Woodstock. 

Since then, many different sub-styles have emerged. Modern designs often focus on simpler, monochrome designs, and traditional techniques, such as the Japanese shibori, still hold strong. 

We’ll learn how to tie-dye and then get creative – be as hippy or as contemporary as you like!

What will we cover?

During this hands on class you will learn:

  • Tie-dye techniques
  • How to make different patterns such as spirals, mandalas and stripes
  • How to apply the dye
  • How to care for your items afterwards.

We will get hands-on and will dye our own items in class.

What shall I bring?

  • An item to dye (A plain white cotton or linen t-shirt or tea towel is perfect!)
  • A plastic bag to take it home in (you will be taking home your item still wet with dye). 

Who will be teaching?
