Drop In Tie-Dye Party
Brooklyn Brainery (190 Underhill Ave., Brooklyn)
$7 in advance

Attention all: tie-dye does not have to be garish or tacky! Or rainbow colored or in a big spiral (not that there’s anything wrong with that). We know more than a dozen ways to get understated, sophisticated results that help you create a dyed item you would actually wear, and in a color palette that suits your everyday wardrobe.

You know that soft old t-shirt that you love the fit and feel of, but can’t in good conscience wear outside the house due to its pit stains/ icky color/ bleach spots/ whatever? Bring it on by anytime between 2 and 5pm and we’ll teach you how to do an amazing job tie-dyeing it.

Items to dye should be 100% cotton or another natural, plant-based fiber (i.e., rayon, hemp, linen). The more times it’s been washed, the better–don’t bring in something right off the rack. Wear something you wouldn’t mind getting dye splashed on, or bring an apron!

And! Don’t forget to tweet/instagram your creation (tagging @happygocrafty & @bkbrains) the day of the party because we’ll be selecting one photo at random to win a Brainery gift certificate.
