Terramonary Tie-Dye Workshop
Learn the basics of tie-dyeing in a fun and creative environment, because there are no mistakes in tie-dye!
In each class, the student will create a tie-dye shirt which is theirs to keep. Each session focuses on a different design ranging from 8th century Japanese techniques of Shibori to the mid-sixties Hippie movement in San Francisco to some original designs from Terramonary Wear.
Because the tie-dye process takes 48 hours, the students will leave their projects to be rinsed, washed and dried. The finished shirts can be picked up at Terramonary Wear or they will be mailed within a week.
During each session, the instructor will reveal, rinse and wash a shirt in the style the class will make that afternoon.
