Community Dye Bath

421 McCormick Ave.
Bring clothes or home textiles that need a refresh! Keep your old clothes out of the landfill with a new splash of color!
What’s a community dye bath?
It’s like a tie-dye party but the goal isn’t to buy a bunch of white clothes to dye in rainbow colors. The goal of a community dye bath is to rejuvenate your stained clothes or home goods with a new splash of color.
I’ll walk you through the steps & help you resuscitate that stained shirt into something worth wearing again!
Bring an item of clothing that’s stained & dye it a darker blue to get it back in your wardrobe rotation! Natural fiber fabrics or those that are less than 35% polyester will work best. Cover those old stains with a new shade of blue and start wearing your favorite item of clothing again. Let’s fight textile waste together!
Minimum class size is 4 for this event. If less than 4 attendees sign up, class will be cancelled & you’ll receive a full refund.
What to bring:
-your old clothes or textiles made of all natural fibers and light in color
-a bucket or plastic bag to take your item home
-rubber gloves if you have them. If not, we have some for sharing.
What happens at the dye bath:
-I’ll show you a few simple tying techniques.
-I’ll show you the process of simple fabric dyeing.
-You’ll dye your clothes and let them sit for as long as you like in the dye bath.
