Exhibits & Events - Workshops - CC_WK2 - Crafts in the Courtyard: Tie Dye - Kids & Teens!

This week participants are tie dying t-shirts. Did you know that the earliest written records about tie-dye come from China and Japan. The process was used during the T'ang Dynasty in China and the Nara Period in Japan as far back as the 6th century. People used natural dyes from berries, leaves, roots and flowers to colour clothing. These natural items were boiled, and the fabrics then soaked in the hot, dyed water to take on a new colour.

Recommended Ages
