How It Works: T-Shirt Tie-Dye Party Friday & Saturday, May 19 & 20.

Just a few guidelines for how our upcoming T-Shirt Tie-Dye Party will work.  Please see below:

  1.  Arrive early for your session.  See the information flyer attached here to find your time:  Fun_Week_May_2017.
  2.  Pick up your shirt from the staff and put your name on it.  (Tag or inside the collar works best.)
  3.  Dampen your shirt and tie it up — we’ll show you how.
  4.  Your shirt goes in to soak, and you go in to class.
  5.  After class (or 30 minutes), get your shirt from the soaking bucket.
  6.  Put on some gloves and a smock, and put on the colors.  More is better — messy is good.  This is just about impossible to mess up.
  7.  Bag up your shirt.  We’ll take it home to rinse out, wash, and dry.
  8.  Pick up your one-of-a-kind shirt when you come to class next week.
