Attention all: tie-dye does not have to be garish or tacky! Or rainbow colored or in a big spiral (not that there's anything wrong with that).

We know more than a dozen ways to get understated, sophisticated results that help you create a dyed item you would actually wear, and in a color palette that suits your everyday wardrobe. This 90-minute class is designed to introduce you to some great techniques you've probably never heard of or seen before, and then you'll pick your favorite designs and colors and make your own items. 

You know that soft old t-shirt that you love the fit and feel of, but can't in good conscience wear outside the house due to its pit stains/icky color/bleach spots/whatever? We'll teach you how to give it a new lease on life. 

Bring up to three items to dye: they should 100% cotton or another natural, plant-based fiber (i.e., rayon, hemp, linen). The more times it's been washed, the better--don't bring in something right off the rack. The items also shouldn't be too huge or thick; no sweatshirts or towels! Wear something you wouldn't mind getting dye splashed on, or bring an apron!
