Learn all about solar dyes - dyes that develop colour & become permanent when exposed to sunlight - in this fun 2hr workshop just for 8-16yr olds. Solar dyes can allow you to create remarkably detailed prints on fabric by harnessing the power of the sun, however these dyes can also be used in tie dyeing, screen printing, stamping, and the batik method. Participants will create a unique print on a t-shirt to take home - t-shirts supplied!
