Learn how to

Tie and Dye with Urban Ladder

Come over to the Urban Ladder store on the 26th of May to learn how to tie-and-dye your clothes. An old, old craft form, tie-and-dye has been practiced for at least 2000 years. We’ve all seen (and probably owned) the ubiquitous bandhani and leheriya prints, India’s contribution to the tie-and-dye craft. And recent years have seen tie-and-dye surge to popularity in upcycling circles. That’s all fine, but why attend this workshop, you ask? For starters, you can make your very own bandhani dupatta – not a skill not many can boast of. And with World Environment Day around the corner, you can do your mite by upcycling your old clothes.

At this workshop, facilitators from Bloom & Grow will guide you to apply the ancient resist techniques of tie-and-dye, using everyday waste like onion peels. You will pleat, pluck, and twist fabrics to create unique patterns. We’d like you to explore upcycling old clothes, so please bring along an old t-shirt to give an exciting makeover. Besides your repurposed t-shirt, you’ll also be taking home three other fabric swatches you’ll have worked on.

Here’s hoping that this workshop inspires you to experiment with dresses, bed linen, cushion covers…really, on any fabric in your house! And don’t forget to keep a wide grin ready, for the next time you get noticed for your funky t-shirts 🙂
