Guided Dye Sessions

The base plan is $25 per person and includes one high-quality white tee shirt, dyes, gloves and all application tools. The fee includes a complete rinse and wash service or we can package the wet dye to rinse yourself at home. We can also heat them here in the shop and you can open and rinse your custom dye in minutes. Half the fun is opening the dye for the first time, but it’s up to you.

You can expect approximately 15 minutes per dyed item, which includes the folding, tying and dying. We can provide as much or as little guidance as you prefer. If you like, we will demonstrate the making of a tie-dye at the beginning of the session to break the ice.
