Fun with colours
Dyeing is Fun!
Cloth,colour,thread and a little bit of magic gave us a beautiful piece of art.
We never knew that we could tie so well and the result was brilliant!
As part of our activities at the Learning Lab we had Tie and dye as a whole class session for grades 1 through 4 in the month of January. The children diligently tied the cloth with strings – This was till we discovered the joys of rubber bands!! They enjoyed all the water soaking, splashing (accidental of course!) involved. The MOST exciting task though, was to put on their myriad coloured gloves to dip the cloth in the dye. They did this with all the earnestness of a doctor going in for surgery! only to break into giggles at more accidental splashing!! We now have many gorgeous tie and dye material in many hues to show for all the fun work.
