Tie Dyeing workshops

Add some colour to your life! Revisit your hippie days or recreate them here and now. Grab a bunch of friends, workmates or a group of kids for their next party and arrange a Tie-Dye Workshop with me.

Tie dye just about anything! Grab your favourite old shirt (or new), calico bags, pillow cases, t-shirts or whatever takes your fancy. Best to work with 100% cotton items. A couple of hours is all you need to create something spectacular.

I love tie dye and my workshops are great for all ages. You’re never too old or too young to wear a tie dye T-shirt, summer frock, scarf or bandana. 

Have a go! We bring all supplies you need to create your very own unique Tie Dye but please bring along your own item/s to dye. Or let us know and we can arrange a selection of T-shirts or Calico bags for you to purchase on the day.

Interested in arranging a workshop? Talk to me about visiting your group for a presentation or hands-on workshop from 2 to 4 hours. Prices start from $150/workshop based on day/date, location and participants. Drop me a note here.

Batik is a wax- resist art form that has been practiced for centuries in Indonesia, Java, Sri Lanka and in many other countries around the world.

 

In the workshops I will introduce you to this unique meditative artform and guide you through the processes of creating individual designs on fabrics that you can take home and use for cushions, artwork or any creative sewing projects.

 

You will learn how to use a traditional canting to draw designs on fabric with hot wax to create a resist and how to apply & prepare reactive dyes to dye your fabric.

 

We supply all materials you will need to create your very own unique bundle of Batik fabrics.  See the technique to get the idea in this Batik demonstration video.

 

 I can customise workshops for your group, organisation or corporate team building events. Let’s talk now.
