indigo dying and tye dye
I work with children on tye dye projects for the small kids i do t shirts(their own ),in soft colours and own designs ( i show them how to tye ,using string, elastic bands and other things . for the older kids i show them stitching techniques and use indigo which is very popular .. i prefer to work when the day is fine and drying is possible ,because wet tye dye in tents and on lines is not very useful..I have been doing this workshop around summer camps for the last 20 years and it is always a hit . I am a montessori teacher and believe that what is done by the self , gives back the sense of worth ...it is especially good in this mobile phone age .
