Have you hear about ice dyeing yet??
At first, ice dye was something we thought was just a passing fad, a silly “additional” trick you could do with fiber-reactive dyes… and then we tried it. The results are mind-blowingly beautiful and complex, and so very eye-catching! Sixteen years of tie-dyeing in the traditional way was turned on its head for us! We soak the garment in soda ash fixative and tie it up just like a “normal” tie-dye, but then, instead of mixing dye powders with water and applying it with bottles, we cover the garment in ice cubes and apply the dye powder directly on top of the cubes! As the ice melts, the professional dyes are diluted and deposited organically, creating insanely cool fissures and shading that we could never achieve with bottles.
An incredible new way to use the dyes that results in beyond gorgeous pieces– you won’t believe what the ice can do. Your piece will be covered in ice cubes that need to melt over 24 hours, so if you’re bringing it home to wash with you (the $30 option), please bring a container, too. We teach you about the dye chemistry, the patterns you can make, how to fold them up and bind them, and how to dye them. Whether you choose to BYO item to dye or if you need an item to dye from our stash (we stock plenty!), this is a fun and affordable class for all! Scroll down to see how pricing works.
