Good Vibes and Tie-Dye

During the last few days of Grade 8 art classes, we had fun experimenting with dye and fabrics.

Tie-dyeing is a method of fabric design. In this process, parts of a piece of fabric are pulled into tufts which are bound with string or elastic bands. The material is then saturated with dye. Where the fabric is bound, it resists the dye; elsewhere, dye is absorbed. The classic designs include the target design, the spiral design and the fan fold design.

It was so much fun, messy and a perfect way to end of year of classes.

Enjoy the masterpieces of their wearable art!
