Bleach Tie Dye with Alive Rescue
**THIS WORKSHOP REQUIRES KIT PICK-UP**
Similar to tie dye, bleach dyeing is an easy fabric dyeing method that you can do at home to transform new or old clothing pieces using only bleach! Join us in this virtual workshop to learn how to create sophisticated bleach dye designs. Our expert will show you a variety of different techniques to use while dyeing, as well as tips and tricks to ensure that your bleaching process is a success.
Your kit will include everything you need but the bleach: rubber bands, disposable gloves, plastic squeeze bottle for your bleach solution, and a black sweatshirt as well as a black bandana to practice on! You are welcome to bring your own extra items to bleach dye as well. If you’re like us, you’ll end up wanting to bleach dye everything in your house!
All proceeds from this workshop will benefit our community partner Alive Rescue. With a brand new bleach dyed sweatshirt and matching bandana, you and your pet will be the talk of the town!
