About the Event
We all know the familiar groovy and bright tie-dyes of the 1970s hippie esthetic. Join us in re-creating these designs using environmentally friendly and 100% nature derived ingredients. We will examine how to collect natural found items for your dye bath, learn about different knotting techniques and create our own dyed cloths using dyes ranging from golden harvest orange, jewel toned blue and coffee colored brown.
