Remaining Spring Semester Classes

Spring semester’s not over yet! You can still register for these remaining classes:




Instructor: Katy Walls

Spend a colorful hour with your home team learning how to create spiral-swirl, ring, and brick tie-dye patterns, along with tips to prevent muddy designs, via LIVE demonstrations on ZOOM with tie-dye-for instructor Katy Walls! While any tie dye kit** will suffice, the fabric that you intend to tie-dye MUST consist of natural materials (i.e. cotton, linen, silk). Please note that synthetic or blended materials will not absorb the dye. Plan to practice manipulating your fabric in real time with Katy, and focus on applying the dye at your leisure once the demonstrations have completed. Go ahead and check your closets – see if you’ve got any stained clothing, sheets, or towels because this is the perfect opportunity to give them a vibrant second chance to be enjoyed by the whole family!!
