Squirt Shirts Workshop w/ Jan Clark
Using mixed dyes participants will add colour to white t-shirts. Squirting a rainbow of colours over the prepared shirts results in many ‘happy accidents’! After washing at home the dyes will be permanent. Children 7 and under will need an adult helper. The dyes are not toxic but they are certainly messy. Please do not wear good clothes.
