Learn to Dye! Playing with Indigo (School Holidays)

  • Grey Hand Press 16 Crockford Street Northgate, QLD, 4013 Australia (map)

Come along during the school holidays and learn to create magical patterns on fabric with all natural indigo dye! This 60 minute class will introduce the students to the wonders of indigo dye and show them how to fold and twist their fabric to produce one of a kind textiles.

All folding materials are provided, including some cotton fabric to play with. Students are encouraged to bring along an item of clothing (white or light coloured, cotton or other natural fibre only, prewashed if possible) so they can create a masterpiece for their wardrobe!

This workshop is suitable for ages 5-12.

PLEASE NOTE: this class can be messy, so please ensure that your kids are wearing old clothes, or something that you don't mind getting splashed with blue dye.

What to bring: Please ensure your child is wearing clothes that you don't mind getting a little messy, or a craft apron to wear over the top of their outfit. Bring along an item of clothing to dye, but ensure it is made of cotton, or another natural fibre and is prewashed if possible. Suggestions: t-shirt, dress, trousers, skirt, tote bag, etc.

Please also bring along a bag or container to take items home as they may still be wet.
