We have plenty of cotton clothes we don’t like, do we?
Instead of giving them away, let’s give them a second chance by
Tie and Dye.
This is such an easy work that everyone can handle, young ones, adults.
I have prepared:
12 Brand new white T shirts for kids, and asked everyone to bring their own old cotton cloth in light colours.
Cotton dyes, Blue, Red, Yellow, three preliminary colours.
After introducing a few ways to tie, our members are so creative by inventing their own pattern of tying and dip the clothes into different colours to make a mix.
Look at what we have done!
Learning fabric can be dyed and the pattern can be controlled is a valuable lesson for kids. And, they know how to make a turn over, maybe not only with clothes.
