Learn Organic Tie-Dye
Tie-dye is an ancient technique to dye cloth, known as “Bandhni” in India and “Shibori” in Japan.
The process of tie-dye typically consists of folding, twisting, pleating, or crumpling fabric or a garment and binding with string or rubber bands, followed by application of dye(s).
Binding the fabric will resist the dye, resulting in areas of the cloth that take the distinctive patterns created by the resistance, and other areas of the cloth that remain white.
In this workshop, you will be introduced to methods of tie-dye with natural dye/ vegetable dye which is non-toxic, good for skin and nature-friendly.
