In this 3.5 hour workshop, students will learn how to design a pattern on a long sleeved t-shirt by tightly binding sections of fabric with rubber bands and then dipping into fabric dye to create variegated patterns. Students will also learn how to knot string and beads on a loom to create unique bracelets and how to finish ends to create a professional finish.
Please specify your child's t-shirt size. Tops are available in small (age 8), medium (age 10), large (age 12) and x-large (age 14). Please let us know if you need a different size. All materials provided with many different colour options available. Bag provided to store jewellery in. Suitable for boys.
PLEASE NOTE: Because the dye needs 24 hours to set, the t-shirts will be available for collection 48 hours after the class.
